Patterson said he drove Litton to Somerset from the Fayette County Detention Center after his initial arrest.
He said Litton was read his Miranda Rights, and afterward the defendant was told that Stephens had passed away from his injuries. Patterson said Litton told him he couldn’t remember much of what happened leading up to the accident, but he said his steering column in his car malfunctioned and caused him to swerve into the other lane on West Ky. 80, leading to the crash.
When asked about Litton’s disposition by Lanham Patterson said he could tell Litton was in considerable pain from his injuries. He also said Litton was cooperative, but he said he couldn’t tell whether Litton expressed any remorse for what he’d done.
Hatfield asked Patterson whether he believes Litton’s actions wantonly created indifference to human life.
“Yes, I do,” Patterson answered.
Lawless stated that enough evidence existed to support the murder case moving forward before the grand jury. Litton’s bond remains at $250,000, and a review hearing has been set for May 22.
