The Christian County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest in connection with the early Sunday morning murder on Old Palmyra Road.
Captain Chris Miller says 29-year old Micah Steven Holland of Pembroke was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with the murder of 30-year old Joey Weatherwax of Cox Mill Road. Weatherwax was found near 7845 Old Palmyra just after 3am with injuries from being hit by a vehicle and what police are now calling a “possible gunshot wound.”
Weatherwax was pronounced dead on the scene and his body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Louisville for an autopsy. Numerous sources say the two men were kin to each other.
Holland is in the Christian County Jail on one million dollars bond.
