Two central Kentucky officials have pleaded innocent to charges of theft and abusing public trust.
An indictment issued last month by a grand jury accuses both of using a city-issued fuel credit card to make personal purchases and taking money from the city. Cruse and Hornback have denied the charges.
LaRue County prosecutor Terry Geoghegan has said the indictment stems from a lengthy investigation spurred by "citizen complaints."
Judge Charles Simms III set a trial date for June 9.
