Two Of Three Alleged Trucker Killers Will Stand Trial, But What About The Third?
Flowerfield Township, Michigan – Two of three alleged killers of 42-year-old truck driver Kevin Johnson of Floyd County, Kentucky, will stand trial for his murder.
Homicide suspects Tyler McNeil, 20, and Kayla Chaney, 24, have waived their right to a preliminary examination and were bound over to Circuit Court this week. Their trial dates have not yet been scheduled, but are expected to take place in 2019.
The third suspect Theron Hunt, 40, has not yet made a decision on whether to waive his right to a preliminary hearing. Hunt is currently scheduled to appear in District Court for a preliminary examination Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Each of the suspects is facing charges of open murder, armed robbery and felony firearm after police say they killed trucker Kevin Johnson in a residential neighborhood near his parked rig on the morning of November 15.
Investigators say they found Johnson dead from a single gunshot wound to his chest.
Undersheriff Mark Lily-white recently revealed Johnson was in the area visiting family at the time he was killed.
