The Trigg County native accused in the armed robbery of a bank last week has also been charged in the March 2008 murder of 64-year old Harvey Choat in Trigg County.
A news release says 28-year old Seth Hooks of Owensboro and formerly of Cadiz was served with the murder warrant in connection with the shooting of Choat, who was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds at his New Hope Road home March 18, 2008.
Trigg County Sheriff Ray Burnam declined to comment on the case, but a Wednesday post on the department's Facebook page said he had been out of town for two days following up on information he received Tuesday regarding the Choat Murder Case. It went on to say Sheriff Burnam had reported all evidence collected to Commonwealth Attorney G. L. Ovey and KSP.
The state police news release says the Trigg Sheriff’s Department and KSP went to the Daviess County Jail after Sheriff Burnam received a tip and they interviewed Hooks about his alleged involvement.
Hooks additionally faces robbery, wanton endangerment and attempted murder charges in Owensboro for allegedly firing one round inside a U.S. Bank on Carter Road last Thursday in the course of an armed robbery.
The Daviess County Jail website says he is being held on a $1 million cash only bond.
