Owensboro man arrested in '08 slaying

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — A western Kentucky man has been charged with murder in a Trigg County cold case from more than five years ago.

Kentucky State Police said at the time that 64-year-old Harvey Choat of Trigg County was found dead in his home of multiple gunshot wounds.

On Thursday, state police said the Trigg County sheriff's office had received a tip about the case. After state police and the sheriff's office interviewed 28-year-old Seth C. Hooks of Owensboro, troopers obtained an arrest warrant, and Owensboro police arrested Hooks on Thursday.

Hooks was being held in the Daviess County jail and was set to appear in court on Wednesday. Online jail records did not indicate whether Hooks was represented by a lawyer.
