On Wednesday afternoon, 56th Circuit Judge C.A. "Woody" Woodall III said he will sign an order to subpoena information from an independent investigation by Trigg County Sheriff Ray Burnam into the Chantell Humphries murder case.

56th Circuit Commonwealth's Attorney G.L. Ovey had filed a motion to that effect and said this was the first time in his career that he has ever had to do this, as the sheriff had not given him any information.

Burnam was in court and said some of his information "may implicate him (Ovey)." Ovey said that was "the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard."

On the judge's order, any information Burnam has will be turned over to the Commonwealth. Ovey said he will make any of that information available to the court and to John Stewart and H.B. Quinn - who represent Claude Russell, the man accused of murdering Humphries in June 2002.
