2 arrested after murder victim found in car in Glendale
"It was a citizen that lives in Glendale, Kentucky that noticed the suspicious car on the property that they hadn't seen very often," Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeff Gregory said about the person who called the authorities.
Gregory says a murder investigation ensued, and tips led them to two suspects. 24-year-old Octavio Correa and his girlfriend, 31-year-old Tiffany Hodges were arrested Sunday.
Police say Correa and Hodges kidnapped the victim from his Munfordville home and drove to Glendale in his car. An arrest report says the suspects bound the victim and wrapped him in a blanket. Police say Hodges saw Correa shoot the victim in the head. Gregory was not able to say how long the victim's body was in the car.
Correa is charged with murder, kidnapping and theft. Hodges is charged with complicity to murder, kidnapping and theft. A not guilty plea was automatically entered after they appeared before the judge.
Police say the suspects and victim are from Munfordville, but their connection and a motive for the killing remains unclear.
"At this time we do not know, it's still under investigation, that's something we're looking into that's still ongoing," Gregory said.
