HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A former social worker in western Kentucky faces a May trial on a charge of tampering with public records.

The Kentucky New Era reports a trial date of May 5 has been set for former Cabinet for Health and Family Services caseworker Donna M. Currey.

Currey handled investigations into the high-profile abuse cases of 9-year-old Amy Dye and 3-year-old Alayna Adair, both of whom were killed.

Dye's older adoptive brother faces a new trial in her slaying after the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned his conviction. Adair's father, Charles Timothy Morris, was convicted last year of murder in her death.

Currey quit her job in 2011 after being accused by a state official of falsifying records. She has pleaded not guilty to the felony charge.
