KY Man Faces Capital Murder Charge For Killing Fleeing Burglar

Kentucky’s Jeff Conrad is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison (if he doesn’t get the death penalty) because he apparently decided to become judge, jury, and executioner.

A man accused of shooting alleged burglars was arrested just before 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to Sheriff Jon Hayden, detectives presented the evidence to a special called grand jury, who then indicted him on a capitol murder charge.

Hayden said the vehicle was backing away when Jeff Conrad, 49, of Benton, fired the shot.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department, on June 8 the McCracken County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office convened on a special grand jury to hear evidence from the investigation into the death of Garlon Casey Cox.

The grand jury returned the indictment for murder against Conrad. He was found and arrested in the Calvert City area on Tuesday afternoon at about 7:15 p.m. and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail without incident.

Brandon York, 36, of Benton, was one of two suspects in the incident and appeared in court on Tuesday, June 9.

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden said Jeff Conrad reported he arrived at AAA Storage, located on Eagles Nest Drive, around 7 a.m. to find two people with a pickup truck of items from his storage unit.
