Satanic plan or wrongful conviction? This case goes back to 1992. Rhonda Sue (Warford) was stabbed to death in a field in Meade County, Ky. Her boyfriend, Garr Keith Hardin, and his friend Jeff Clark were tried and convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 1995. The Innocence Project is working to free the men. They filed a 133 page motion asking for a new trial. They said a hair found on Warford does not match Hardin or Clark and say that Clark had an alibi. Another major point of the motion names a former Louisville detective Mark Handy who first handled the case when Warford disappeared from Louisville. The motion says Handy's investigative letters and trial testimony included statements from the suspects --statements Hardin and Clark say they never made. Handy has been the subject of other iTeam investigations and is currently under criminal investigation for his actions in another case where a man was wrongly convicted. He testified at that trial just weeks before testifying at the trial for Hardin and Clark.Hardin said he was immersed in a dark satanic world.........Hardin did confess to the crime before the parole board. He said the following: "Well, I don't want to say the Devil made me do it, you know, and try to put it off on somebody else like that but at the same time I don't know cause we were sitting there drinking and doing drugs and the next thing I know we've got her and start killing her." Attorneys say the confession was an attempt to be paroled not an admission of guilt.
