HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – Preliminary hearings for two Hopkins County men charged with kidnapping two people last week were delayed.

Danny and Dustin Massey appeared in court on Friday morning.

They face charges of kidnapping and tampering with a witness.

Hearings will continue next week because a public defender needs to be assigned to Danny.

Both are accused of kidnapping two people in the White Plains area late last week and holding them in a pit at a home on Oglesby Cemetery Rd.

Danny and Dustin Massey are still in the Hopkins County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
