Bowling Green man indicted for Rock Creek murders

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - A little more than a year after a double murder on Rock Creek Road, a grand jury has indicted a suspect in connection to the deaths.

Juan Paulo Flores-Jarada was indicted by a Warren County grand jury on two counts of murder.

In December 2018, Deloris 'Lois' Stacker and Karen Burks were killed in Burks apartment.

13 News spoke to Burks’s daughter , Keyona Jeffreys, in December of 2018, who had this to say about her mother:

"She was a mother, a person, a human being who didn't deserve -- absolutely didn't deserve -- what happened to her."

Jeffreys said Burks and Stacker were very close friends.

Family members say Burks was a mother of three and a grandmother of eight and she had lived in Bowling Green for more than 10 years.

Flores-Jarada is in federal custody on unrelated charges and will be transferred to Bowling Green once he has completed his federal sentence.

Karen Burk's daughter, Kaylah Gardner, had this to say about her mother's killer finally being arrested.

"It pretty much you know, heart drenching to find out who did it. Waiting all this time for answers I mean, it's been a year a little over a year. Our family has been through a lot, it's a relief to finally be wrapping this us," said Gardner. "I mean we're all just dealing with it in our own separate ways pretty much, I mean everybody has a way to grief everyone grieves differently but the best thing that everybody is doing right now is just pushing forward. So we come together as a family and we help each other when need, and we push through it together."

13 News will continue to follow this case as it moves forward.
