A man has been arrested on a murder charge in connection with the death of Chad B. Muncy, 21, who was found murdered in his home in the Mozelle community of Leslie County on April 21.
An arrest warrant was served on Charles D. Watts, who was already being held on an unrelated burglary charge in the Clay County Detention Center, state police said.
State police said they are continuing to investigate the murder of another Leslie County man who was killed just days before Muncy. Kelly Johnson Jr., 66, was found dead in the floor of his home in Hyden on April 18. He had been shot once. No charges have been filed in that case.
