LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Two Louisville men accused of killing a lover and burying his body in their basement appeared in court Wednesday morning. It turns out the CIA could be holding up the case.
Jeffrey Mundt and Joseph Banis were in court to iron out some bumps before trials begin this spring. They are charged in the murder of Jamie Carroll, whose body was found decomposing in a sealed plastic container buried in the basement of Mundt's Old Louisville home in June of 2010.
Detectives say the three men were doing drugs and having sex when Carroll was stabbed and then shot. Mundt and Banis each blame the other.
Mundt is out on home incarceration, and could be seen with his parents Wednesday in the courthouse, dressed in a suit.
The judge granted Mundt three hours for a dentist appointment, denying requests for trips to the grocery store and church services.
While they appeared in court together, the men will be tried separately. Banis' trial is set for May, while Mundt's is in September.
Banis' attorneys are frustrated that their trial starts in a little over 100 days, and they say they're still missing evidence.
"We're frustrated with the process," says Darren Wolff, Joseph Banis' attorney. "We don't as we speak have all the evidence in the case."
Another hold-up in the case is that federal investigators, including the CIA, have their hands on laptops and hard drives from an incident that happened in Chicago before the discovery of the murder.
Banis and Mundt were arrested there after being found with $55,000 worth of counterfeit money, date rape drugs, handguns, and fake IDs. That evidence may be needed during the trials.
Jeffrey Mundt faces life in prison. Banis faces the death penalty.
