Wrongful Death New Details in Martin Co. Triple Murder

New details have emerged after a second arrest is made in connection to a fatal fire in Martin County. Three people died including an 8-year-old girl.

Tim Goble lost his 8-year-old daughter, Trinity, his mother, Tina, and his step-father, Junior.

“As the details have come out it’s definitely made it a lot harder. It’s made it a much more tougher process,” says Goble.

According to an arrest warrant, 26-year-old Amanda Bowen is facing murder charges along with robbery and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the fire, the same charges as Jack Smith.

The warrant also states Bowen allegedly worked with Smith to kill all three by shooting them with a gun and stabbing them with a knife after robbing Tina of medication and jewelry.

“I’m trying to be as strong as possible,” says Goble.

As arson investigators continue to come out to the scene to find out exactly what happened, Goble tells LEX 18 that he’s going to withhold anger and focus on the good by holding on to the last moments he had with Trinity.

“I know that she would want her dad to smile she would want her dad to try to be happy,” says Goble.

Wrongful Death Madison Co. Teen Pleads Guilty to Killing Baby Sister

A Madison County teen admitted in court to killing her baby sister while watching her last year.

She says she was frustrated with the infant at the time of the death.

The hearing Wednesday was less than 10 minutes. Marcum stood before the court with her head down and her voice low. The judge asked Marcum to describe in her own words what happened to Bella Rose on June 7, 2013.

“I was laying Bella down for a nap and I got frustrated and put my hand on her head,” said Marcum.

Marcum says she pressed her sister’s head into the mattress until she stopped crying, but never meant to kill her.

“I just got frustrated because she wouldn’t go to sleep,” said Marcum.

Marcum was only a child herself, 17-years-old and about to finish her G.E.D. She changed her plea from not guilty of murder to guilty of manslaughter. She admits to killing baby Bella Rose, even though she says it was an accident.

Wrongful Death Second Arrest Made in Fatal Martin County Fire

A second arrest has been in connection with a triple murder in Martin County.

Amanda Bowen is charged with three counts of murder, robbery, and tampering with physical connection in connection with the deaths of three people in a weekend fire.

Jack Smith has already been charged in the case. He is charged three counts of murder, one count of first-degree robbery and one count of tampering with physical evidence. Smith is being held in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center without bond.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

The victims have been identified as Tina Goble, her husband Canie Johnson, Jr., and her granddaughter, Trinity Maynard.

Tim Goble, Trinity’s father and Tina Goble’s son, said Smith was a family acquaintance.

He says Trinity had just started the third grade and he was supposed to spend the day watching basketball with her. Instead, he’s picking out headstones and remembering the inseparable bond all three shared.

“Honestly, those three were inseparable,” he said.

Pedophile Tracking Accused Twins Face Additional Charges

Elderly twins arrested on child porn charges appeared in court Wednesday morning and will apparently face additional charges.

Jerry and Jack Cassidy, 76, waived their preliminary hearing to the grand jury.

The brothers will be arraigned at 1 p.m. Wednesday on additional charges. It remains unclear what those charges are. The Cassidys’ attorney said he did not want to comment on the new charges, as he just found out about them late Tuesday night.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Police say they found hundreds of images of naked boys when they searched the Cassidys’ home.

Several people have come forward claiming they were victims of the brothers when they were serving as Boy Scout leaders.

One man, who came forward under the condition of anonymity, said Jack and Jerry Cassidy molested him during a sleep-over at their home in 1977 when he was 12-years-old.

“They made you take your clothes off, tied me to a chair and played with me,” he said.

Another man said he spent time in the same house when he was a young Boy Scout.

Private Detective, Man Accused of Attempted Murder Leads Police on Chase While Naked

A convicted sex offender recently released from prison is back behind bars, this time accused of trying to gun down a Pulaski County preacher in a crowded Russell County pool hall. Then, days later, leading police on a chase through a neighborhood while completely naked.

Jerry Brown was arrested Tuesday, but police say the situation began Sunday at Laker Billiards in Russell Springs, where officers say Brown fired a shot inside the business while other people were inside. They say he was trying to kill Jason Collins, identified as a preacher in Somerset.

According to the chief of police, the gun appeared to have malfunctioned or more shots would’ve been fired.

“He nervously fiddled with it and ran out of the establishment and in doing so, for probably over 100 yards, he was dropping unfired rounds,” Chief Joseph Irvin said.

On Tuesday, investigators tracked their suspect to East Kentucky 619 and Stephens Ridge Road, where they say he lost control of the stolen vehicle he was driving and ran through yards, fences and fields. Officers say Brown was completely naked during that chase, only wearing a watch.

Police say Brown was living with the preacher’s estranged wife.

He faces a long list of charges, including attempted murder and indecent exposure.
