Police identify victim of slaying

The victim in a week-old murder case in Casey County has been identified.

State police said the man killed Jan. 1 is Ramon R. Carillo, who also went by the alias Felipe Garcia Vazquez.

Carillo, who was originally from Mexico, was identified through the Kentucky State Police's Automated Fingerprint Identification System, which matched Carillo's prints based on a prior criminal record in Florida.

Isidro Perez, 25, has been charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence. State police said Perez shot Carillo multiple times while Carillo was assaulting another man.
