CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Tammy Moorer, the woman charged with kidnapping missing woman Heather Elvis, is scheduled to appear in court on Monday for a contempt of court hearing.

The hearing is to determine if Moorer is in violation of the gag order placed on this case, according to officials at the court clerk’s office. The hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. No other details on the hearing were made available by court officials.

Moorer’s husband Sidney Moorer is scheduled to go to trial in Horry County on August 28 on an obstruction of justice charge in connection with the case, WMBF News learned earlier this week.

Both Moorers are still due to be tried on the charge of kidnapping. Sidney Moorer’s first trial on this charge ended with a mistrial and hung jury after several days of testimony and deliberation last June. His request for a change of venue was granted, and this trial will now be held in Georgetown County.

There is no indication when Tammy Moorer will go to trial for kidnapping.

The Moorers were arrested in February 2014 in connection with the disappearance of Elvis, who was 20 years old when she went missing.

Prosecutors are unable to discuss the case due to a court-appointed gag order that remains in place.

Moorer actually spent time behind bars for breaking that gag order. He was sentenced to five months in jail last July for talking to the press during his trial, but ultimately only served two of them.

    It's a brisk morning with temperatures near 30 across the area. A breeze will also be around, making it feel extra cold with the wind chills in the mid-20s. Plenty of sunshine will help us get back to highs in the mid 50s today and we'll manage the upper 50s to near 60 tomorrow.
