LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A same-sex couple who entered into a civil union in Vermont is at the center of a legal debate. The question that is creating the debate is whether or not the couple can be forced to testify against each other in a murder trial.
It stems from a case dating back to 2011.
Bobbie Jo Clary is charged with murder, robbery and tampering with physical evidence in the death of George Murphy in the Portland neighborhood.
He died from massive head trauma.
Detectives say Clary’s partner, Geneva Case, heard her admit to killing Murphy.
It all boils down to a civil union certificate and what it means to a Jefferson County judge.
