MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say both suspects charged in connection with the murder of a Clay County father have pleaded not guilty.
Multiple media outlets report 32-year-old Roscoe Henson, who is charged with the murder of 24-year-old Trevor Dykes, pleaded not guilty Thursday.
Police say 35-year-old Thomas Miracle, who is charged with solicitation to commit murder, has also pleaded not guilty.
Dykes was shot outside of his home on July 27. Sheriff Kevin Johnson says police believe Miracle arranged to have Henson kill Dykes because of a child custody dispute between Dykes and his former girlfriend. Johnson says Miracle was the woman’s new boyfriend.
Henson and Miracle are being held in the county jail. Online jail records do not indicate if either man has an attorney.
Johnson says the investigation is ongoing.
