FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky State Police say a juvenile is charged in an ongoing murder investigation in Franklin County.
The investigation began in early October when officers say 73-year-old Ronald Thornton was killed in his home off Pea Ridge Road.
State Police say they initially responded to a 911 hang-up call from the home, and found Thornton in critical condition when they arrived. He later died from his injuries.
KSP says the suspect is in a juvenile detention center. Because the suspect is a juvenile, no name was released.
