Tammy and Sydney Moorer, the couple charged with the kidnapping and murder of Heather Elvis, could soon be back in court, according to attorneys for the two and 15th Circuit Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.

Sydney Moorer’s attorney Kirk Truslow says all parties on the case plan to meet after the holidays for the definitive date.

“We will have a date set for pretrial motions because there are some issues to go over prior to trial, which get things firmed up so that the trial can go nice and smooth and then a second date that’s set for the trial,” Truslow said.

He said everyone is working hard to get to a resolution because the case needs to be resolved.

A date for the trial could be set in January, he said.

A trial date was originally set in May of this year, but was delayed.

Richardson said that date wasn’t realistic because they were still waiting on paperwork in the case.
