VIDEO | Louisville man accused of three murders spits on man during arraignment
A man accused of murdering one man and two teenage brothers is facing a new charge.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man accused of murdering one man and two teenage brothers is facing a new charge.
Brice Rhodes was arrested earlier this year. Police say that in early May, he shot and killed Christopher Jones. Later that month, detectives say Rhodes and two juvenile accomplices murdered 14-year-old Larry Ordway and his brother, 16-year-old Maurice Gordon. Their bodies were dumped in the Shawnee neighborhood.
According to police detectives, Rhodes killed the two brothers because he feared they would snitch about his involvement in Jones' murder.
On Wednesday, Rhodes faced a new charge stemming from the alleged assault of an inmate. According to an arrest report, the assault took place on the night of Aug. 31. Authorities say surveillance video captured Rhodes attacking the inmate, who was serving as a work-aid. As a result of the assault, the inmate suffered pain in his head and neck, along with a small cut to his forehead.
Rhodes is charged with fourth degree assault -- a misdemeanor -- in connection with that case.
He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
During his arraignment Thursday morning, Rhodes appeared to spit on another man in court. It's not yet clear if he will face an additional charge related to that incident.
