Court proceedings were delayed Wednesday for an  employee of the LaRue County Detention Center.

Tami Burden, 37, was suspended from her job in July after she allegedly made threats to others at the jail. According to police reports, the Hodgenville woman made a threatening statement to a co-worker on July 3: “I was this close to bringing a gun into work and blowing everyone’s brains out.”

Burden was charged with third-degree terroristic threatening.

Russell Goff, a Greensburg attorney, has been appointed special prosecutor in the case. Burden qualified financially for a public defender.

Burden’s pretrial conference was scheduled for Sept. 8 but was delayed due to the attorneys’ conflicting schedules. Burden’s next court appearance is Oct. 20.
