Minister indicted in Danville pawn shop shootings

DANVILLE — A south-central Kentucky minister has been indicted on three counts of murder in the shooting deaths at a Danville pawn shop last month.

One of the people killed, Daniel P. Smith, was a resident of Richmond.

The Advocate Messenger in Danville says 48-year-old Kenneth Allen Keith was also charged Monday with first-degree robbery and burglary in the Sept. 20 shootings at ABC Gold Games and More.

Arraignment is scheduled Nov. 5 in Boyle County Circuit Court. Keith pleaded not guilty last week in Boyle District Court, and his lawyer has said the wrong person was arrested.

Keith, a Baptist minister from Burnside, is accused of killing Mike and Angela Hockensmith of Stanford and Daniel Smith of Richmond.
