SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A special judge has been appointed to hear the case against Stanley Dishon.

Dishon, 55, is charged with the September 1999 murder of his niece, Jessica Dishon. Jessica, 17, disappeared from the driveway of her home on the morning of September 10. Her body was found 17 days later.

After both Circuit Court judges in Bullitt County disqualified themselves from hearing the case, the Commonwealth appointed Judge Charles C. Simms, III from the 10th Judicial Circuit to preside over the trial.

Dishon will be arraigned at 10 a.m. October 24 before Simms at the Bullitt County Judicial Center.
