The Campbellsville man accused of killing a local woman in a drunken driving crash will mediate his case with prosecutors.
William Howard Mayes, 29, of 1350 Liberty Road in Elk Horn, was indicted by a Taylor County grand jury in July. He was charged with first-degree murder, among other charges, and faces as much as life in prison if convicted. Mayes has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Mayes appeared in Taylor Circuit Court on Tuesday before Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram. His hearing took nine minutes.
