LIBERTY — The Taylor County man charged in last week’s murder at a Casey County business told a detective that the victim was killed over a debt.
The alleged shooter, however, remains at large.
David Salyers, 59, of Elk Horn, is being held today in the Casey County Detention Center under a $1-million cash bond after being charged with complicity to commit murder in the Sept. 26 death of Wendell “Gleason” Pyles of Adair County, who was shot three times in the head while working alone in a pallet mill at Tarter Manufacturing Co. in Dunnville.
According to the arrest citation filed by Kentucky State Police Detective Ricky Brooks, Salyers admitted he drove the man who shot Pyles to the Tarter mill in his truck, which was torched later that night.
KSP Sgt. Andy Olsen said Thursday afternoon that at least one more arrest is expected in the case, but was unsure if officers have been unable to locate the man Salyers identified as the shooter or were continuing to investigate before filing any more charges.
