Double Murder Case Gets Re-tried

Commonwealth VS. Carlos Ordway.  Our guests on the show are Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Kimberly Henderson-Baird, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Aspen Carlisle and Detective Rob Wilson.  The defendant was charged with two counts of murder that occurred in 2007 and was tried in 2010. This was a retrial due to some evidentiary issues and it was tried again in the summer of 2014.

The facts of the case are that Carlos Ordway and the two male victims were on their way from Louisville to Lexington together in a car. Carlos was the passenger and one victim was driving and the other victim was in the back seat.  They were on Appian Way when the defendant decided to pull a gun and shoot the victims multiple times. He shot the driver two times and then turned around and shot the victim in the back seat four times.  When the driver was shot it caused the vehicle to crash into a parked SUV. The defendant was seen by witnesses getting out of the car and walking away, but he then turned back around went to the car opened the door and shot the driver one more time and the victim in the back seat one more time at close range in the eye.  The defendant tried to get into a car that was parked at the red light but they pulled away.  He then started to walk around in the middle of the road in circles mumbling until the EMS and police showed up. The Defendant was taken into custody at that time after being questioned.

The defendant went to trial in 2010 and a jury found him guilty of two counts of murder and sentenced him to Death.  However, due to the evidentiary issues the conviction was overturned and the defendant was once again set to go to trial.  The case was tried in June of 2014 and the Jury found Carlos Ordway guilty once again of two counts of murder.  They sentenced him to two terms of Life without the possibility for parole for 25 years.
