Prosecutors in the Curtis Lovelace murder case want phone records of the lead investigator in the case destroyed.

A motion was filed Monday in Adams County Circuit Court that the phone records of Quincy Police Detective Adam Gibson be returned to Judge Bob Hardwick and destroyed.

Lovelace’s defense wants to see the records to see when Gibson made contact with Curtis Lovelace’s second wife, Erika Gomez.

The prosecution says the state has reviewed the phone records and determined that there was no contact between Gibson and Gomez before the official investigation into the death of Lovelace’s first wife Corey began in January of 2014.

Lovelace is accused of killing Corey in their home in 2006. His first trial resulted in a hung jury earlier this year. The retrial is scheduled for October 24th.
