      Here's an update on that murder trial of a former Adams County resident taking place in Kentucky, according to the The News Enterprise.

      Two of the children in a Rineyville home where two women were murdered nearly three years ago pointed the finger at former U.S. Army Sgt. Brent Burke.

      Burke's son and stepson said during testimony that he was responsible for the deaths of their mother, Tracy Burke, and grandmother, Karen Comer.

      The boys were 4 and 7 when the women were shot sometime between midnight and dawn on Sept. 11, 2007.
