Ky. man charged in coach's slaying due in court

Posted:

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky teenager charged with slaying a youth sports coach is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

The Kentucky New Era reports that a preliminary hearing for 19-year-old Seth E. Wallen of Hopkinsville is set for 2 p.m. in Christian County District Court.

Wallen is charged with shooting 38-year-old Corey "Big Ike" Trice to death a week ago.

Trice coached youth teams every Saturday morning of basketball and football seasons for at least a decade. He was found in front of his mother's home after being shot multiple times on Oct. 9.

Hopkinsville Police Sgt. Rick McCormack says a "concerned citizen" provided the tip that led to Wallen's arrest.
