GRAVEL SWITCH - Michael A. Hays, 43, of Forkland Road, and five others were arrested Monday on federal felony charges, and $1.2 million in farm equipment and property were seized from his farm there.
Hays' wife, Trena Hays, 46, and his stepson, Derek Brummett, 25, of Cream Ridge Road in Junction City, were also arrested on federal felony charges, along with Frank Hall, 28, Beverly Hall, 27, and David Scott Miller, 28, all of Lancaster.
William David Miller was arrested in April in Odon, Ind., after he told police there he shot Hays at a Shell Mart. Beverly Hall is William Miller's daughter, and Frank Hall is his son-in-law. It is unclear whether David Scott Miller is related to the family.
Many of the charges are drug related, according to a U.S. District Court clerk in Lexington. The complete list of charges will be released this afternoon.
