Evidence Tampering Court Appearance Wednesday
(BOWLING GREEN)–A preliminary hearing is February 20th for a Frankford woman who admitted at trial that she tried to destroy evidence used to convict a man of murder.
40-year-old Rebecca Jeanne Kirk is charged in Pike County with two felony counts of tampering with evidence. Kirk is accused of damaging or trying to destroy a rifle, ammunition and clothing at the request of Calvin Duane Petty on April 15 of 2010.
Petty was having an affair with Kirk even as he was engaged to Sandra Fugate of Hannibal. He was convicted last June of murdering Fugate on the same day he admitted the murder to Kirk. The killing happened just two days before Petty and the victim were to be married.
Kirk admitted on the witness stand at Petty’s trial that she followed through on the defendant’s request to destroy evidence.
