Community remembers 1 year since triple murder at pawn shop

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) -- Family and friends held a prayer vigil to mark the one-year anniversary of three people killed inside a central Kentucky pawn shop.

WKYT-TV reports the vigil was held Saturday night in Somerset, Kentucky, to honor 35-year-old Michael Hockensmith; his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith; and 60-year-old gold broker Daniel Smith of Richmond. They were shot in a Danville pawn shop co-owned by the Hockensmiths on Sept. 20, 2013.

Kenneth A. Keith has been charged with murder in the fatal shootings. No trial date has been set.

Michael Hockensmith's mother, Barbara Lewis, has filed a lawsuit against Keith.

The lawsuit seeks $665,000 for Michael Hockensmith's lost wages and $7,341 for funeral expenses as well as unspecified punitive damages and damages for his two children.
