Hearing Tuesday for Man Accused of Helping in Pike County Escape
(BOWLING GREEN)-- A pre-trial hearing is Tuesday for a Louisiana man accused of helping three jail escapees.

Chatman is accused of driving three of the men from Bowling Green to Louisiana on the night of the breakout. His trial is scheduled for June Sixth.
The other suspects are Jason Darnell and William Wilkerson. Darnell is set for trial June Sixth. Wilkerson is awaiting a trial date after a new judge was appointed to his case.
