Lawsuit filed over pawn shop shootings in Danville

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A man accused of killing three people inside a central Kentucky pawn shop last year now faces a lawsuit filed by the mother of one of the victims.

The Advocate-Messenger in Danville (http://bit.ly/1maLdub ) said Barbara Lewis filed the lawsuit against 49-year-old Burnside pastor Kenneth Allen Keith on behalf of herself and her two grandchildren, who are 10 years and 20 months old.

Lewis' son, 35-year-old Michael Hockensmith, and his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith, of Stanford, and 60-year-old gold broker Daniel Smith of Richmond were killed in the shootings.

The lawsuit filed last week in Boyle County Circuit Court seeks $665,000 for Michael Hockensmith's lost wages and $7,341 for funeral expenses as well as unspecified punitive damages and damages for the two children.
