A central Kentucky judge has refused bond for a minister accused of murdering three people in a Danville pawn shop in September.
Being held without bond in the Boyle County jail in Danville is 48-year-old Kenneth Allen Keith. He was charged Oct. 9 with three counts of murder and one count of first-degree robbery in the deaths of 35-year-old Michael Hockensmith and his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith, both of Stanford; and 60-year-old Daniel Smith of Richmond.
The Lexington Herald-Leader said Danville police detective Kevin Peel testified Monday about a shell casing and receipts found inside a Somerset gold shop Keith operated. Under questioning from defense attorney Mark Stanziano, Peel said a 9-year-old witness didn't identify the shooter on the 911 call as "Keith" or "Uncle Allen."
