LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The case against a Louisville teenager accused of murdering his stepbrother will not be tossed out.
Judge Barry Willett refused to throw out the case against Josh Young on Friday. Young and his father Josh Gouker are accused of killing 14-year-old Trey Zwicker in May 2011. Zwicker was Gouker's stepson.
Young's lawyers notified the court on Friday that if Young is convicted, they might present evidence during a potential penalty phase regarding the teenager's mental state.
In December, Gouker was ruled competent to stand trial.
The trial is expected to start sometime in 2013, although Young's attorneys want him tried separately from his father.
