Suspect arraigned in co-worker's death

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of killing a co-worker at Packaging Unlimited last week remains jailed on a $250,000 full cash bond.

Thirty-three-year-old Raymon Murrell is charged with murder, burglary and tampering with physical evidence in the death of Phillip Schulz.

Investigators say Murrell was breaking into Packaging Unlimited's vending machines early on April 11 when Phillip Schulz, who was about to start his shift, interrupted him.

Schulz died from his injuries during the weekend.

"That's a dangerous man," said John Schulz, the victim's son. "He was breaking into a vending machine and my father told him to leave and he hit my father in the back of the head with a steel pole. That's unacceptable."

Murrell's sister, Shawanta Murrell, says her brother told her he didn't do it and she believes him.

"He's just telling me, 'Sister, I didn't do it,' so I'm going to sit there and believe him until he's proven guilty or not guilty."

Murrell says he was fired from Packaging Unlimited prior to the break-in. The judge has ordered him to have no contact with the business and the victim's family.
