Suspect charged in connection with murder in south Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An 18-year-old man was arrested Monday afternoon in connection with a murder that happened in south Louisville in late May.

Police arrested Glendale Hall Jr. in the 400 block of M Street around 3 p.m. on June 11. Police say Hall was present when 20-year-old Anthony Edwards was shot and killed. It happened on May 22 near South 4th Street and Winkler Avenue. 

Police found Edwards in the yard of a home behind a car wash suffering from a gunshot wound. He died at the scene. 

According to a Louisville Metro Police arrest report, Hall admitted to his part in the crime, and knew Edwards was going to be robbed the night of the murder. 

Hall appeared before a judge on Wednesday morning.

"Are you Mr. Hall," asked a Jefferson County Prosecutor. The prosecutor then read the charges against Hall. "One count of complicity to murder, one count of robbery in the first degree,"

The judge then entered a not guilty plea on Hall's behalf and ordered the 18-year old to be held on a $50,000 cash bond.

"I still can't breathe," said Kim Perry, Edwards' older sister.

It is all very bittersweet for Edwards' family.

Perry said, "I wish I could say I could breathe now since they found somebody, they got somebody, but I still can't breathe."

Perry said family members are still struggling because while police were looking for suspects, they have been looking for resources for Edwards' funeral.

"No insurance, no nothing. Penny pinching everywhere," said Perry.

So on the very same day the 18-year old suspect made his first court appearance, the 20-year old victim was finally laid to rest.

"It has been a long process for us all," said Lola Hunter, Edwards' relative. "I don't have no sympathy in my heart for him, I don't -- no matter how young they are, they took somebody from us."

And for now, Hall is being taken away from his loved ones and is locked up at Metro Corrections.

Hall is charged with complicity to commit murder and first degree robbery.
