Ky. pastor charged in slayings attended funeral

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky pastor charged in a triple slaying in a Danville pawn shop attended the funeral for the couple who acquired the business from the suspect.

Tony Hockensmith, whose brother and sister-in-law died in the shootings, says Kenneth Allen Keith offered condolences at the funeral.

Keith was arrested Wednesday and charged with three counts of murder and robbery. Keith is a pastor in Burnside and has a gold-buying business in Somerset.

Hockensmith said Thursday he's sickened by the arrest of his brother's friend in the Sept. 20 slayings at ABC Gold, Games and More.

Hockensmith says there had been conflict over the pawn shop's sale. Also, he says his brother had sold gold to Keith but shifted business to someone else.

Killed in the shootings were Michael and Angela Hockensmith and Daniel Smith.
