Man Charged With Second Murder

An Eastern Kentucky man already in jail on murder charges is charged with another killing after authorities linked him to the body of a man found in a rusted metal barrel.

Tony Hodge of London is accused of killing the man whose remains were discovered in a barrel in Laurel County on June 21, 2007. Twenty-six-year-old Hodge is already being held in the Madison County Detention Center for allegedly killing Margaret Faye Jackson in January, 2006.

Police have been unable to identify the body, but said information from a 2005 murder trial helped link Hodge. Hodge has refused to talk to police about the case.
