Huber's holds candlelight service for murder victims

Posted: Updated:

STARLIGHT, In.  (WDRB) -- A popular Kentuckiana restaurant is remembering a southern Indiana couple who was brutally murdered earlier this month.

Joe Huber's Family Farm & Restaurant is honoring the life and legacy of Gary Henderson and Senie Arnold.

Friday night, the restaurant held a candlelight memorial service for the couple.  It was held at the pony carousel that Gary Henderson built.

This came on the same day that the two murder suspects in the case made another court appearance.  Kevin Schuler and Austin Scott made an important court appearance on Friday afternoon.

"We want to see justice served," says Sue-z Schmelz, Henderson's daughter.

Schuler and Scott were brought before a Harrison County judge to answer questions about the status of their legal representation.

"Obviously you have a right to -- you have a constitutional right to an attorney and today was just to make sure that guarantee was afforded," says Otto Schalk, Harrison County Prosecuting attorney.

The two are accused of murdering 70-year-old Gary Henderson and 57-year-old Senie Arnold, earlier this month.

Schmelz says it is not easy seeing the suspects in court.  However, she's glad they're in custody.  Schmelz says, "We'll let the courts handle it; doesn't change our feelings and our emotions."

The pain is still fresh for family members.  "Our family is just so honored to remember Gary Henderson and his wife Senie Arnold," says Terra Huber Mahan, Joe Huber's Family Farm & Restaurant.

Friday night, Joe Huber's Family Farm & Restaurant in Star Light held the memorial service in honor of the victims. And that's when family and friends got their first look at a permanent memorial created in honor of the couple.

Mahan says, "It's just our family's way of remembering him and having something permanent out here at the pony carousel to remember Gary and Senie."

Meanwhile, the two suspects are scheduled to go to trial in November.  Family members are not necessarily looking forward to that, but they are excited about the service and the memorial.

"I think my dad would love it. You know, dad and Senie were all about kids and all about their horses and I just think that there's no better way to honor them," says Schmelz.

The memorial will remain on display outside the pony carousel.
