LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A bomb was dropped by the prosecution during Friday's pretrial conference in the murder case of Gregory O'Bryan, the man accused of murdering Sullivan University student Andrew Compton. Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Tom Van De Rostyne disclosed that they have new evidence that now needs to be tested by the crime lab to see if it can be connected to Compton.
O'Bryan is facing charges of murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse in the death of Compton, a culinary arts student at Sullivan who was last seen leaving his dorm on October 28, 2010.
The arrest report filed at the time O'Bryan was taken into custody on November 9, 2010 stated that O'Bryan and Compton had exchanged emails before meeting in person.
