DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Search warrants and related affidavits say a central Kentucky pastor had been angry with a couple running a pawn shop in the days leading up to their shooting deaths.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that 48-year-old Kenneth Allen Keith of Burnside told a friend in Michigan that 35-year-old Michael Hockensmith and his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith, 'cost him a lot of money.' Keith is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Boyle District Court on charges of murder related to the deaths of the Hockensmiths and a gold broker, 60-year-old Daniel Smith of Richmond.
All three were killed inside the ABC Gold Games and More in Danville on Sept. 20. The Hockensmiths co-owned the store.
Keith's attorneys say police arrested the wrong man.
