LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - In a ruling released Thursday morning, Jefferson Circuit Judge Susan Schultz Gibson has ruled that charges brought by a grand jury against Jason Stinson will be heard during the same trial.

Stinson, the former head football coach at Pleasure Ridge Park High School, is facing reckless homicide and wanton endangerment charges for the death of player Max Gilpin.

A Jefferson County grand jury indicted Stinson on the second charge Monday.

It was one year ago, August 20, 2008, when Gilpin's collapsed during practice. He died three days later from heat related injuries.

Stinson's trial is scheduled to begin August 31.
