       A Kentucky court could set a precedent if they force a lesbian woman to testify against her partner.

       Prosecutors say Geneva Case overheard her partner Bobbie Joe Clary talk about murdering a man two years ago.

       Case has said she wont testify against Clary citing a Kentucky law that allows spouses to refuse to  testify against each other.

     Kentucky law also says they don't recognize same-sex marriages.

     Clary and Case were married in Vermont in 2004.
