Judge: Woman Must Testify Against Partner
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A judge has ruled the same-sex partner of a woman charged with murder must testify against her.
The case in Jefferson County is the first legal test in the state over forcing same-sex partners to testify against each other.
WDRB-TV reported that Circuit Judge Susan Schultz Gibson ruled Monday that it's "abundantly clear" that Kentucky doesn't recognize same-sex marriages within the state or from other states.
Bobbie Jo Clary and Geneva Case entered into a civil union in Vermont several years ago. Prosecutors argued Case should have to testify about hearing Clary admit to killing a man two years ago and seeing her clean blood out of the man's van.
