New evidence possible in case of killing, burial of body in basement

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- New evidence could be revealed in the case of two men charged with killing a lover and burying his body in their basement.

Monday in court, attorneys for Joseph Banis are expected to ask to look at what's on a computer hard drive that was found after Banis and Jeffrey Mundt were arrested in Chicago.

The two were arrested there after being found with $55,000 worth of counterfeit money, date rape drugs, handguns, and fake IDs.

As prosecutor Ryane Conroy explains, "This hard drive was a hard drive that was taken and seized as a result of a search warrant by the secret service in relation to the counterfeiting operation."

The hard drives were just recently given to LMPD.  They were found before the discovery of the murder of Jamie Carroll.  His body was found decomposing in a sealed plastic container buried in the basement of Mundt's Old Louisville home in June of 2010.

The two face separate trials.
