Minister pleads not guilty in pawn shop shootings

DANVILLE — A south-central Kentucky minister has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the fatal shootings of three people at a Danville pawn shop.

WKYT-TV reports 48-year-old Kenneth Allen Keith entered the plea Tuesday during his arraignment in Boyle Circuit Court.

The courtroom had heavy security during the hearing. Keith wore a bulletproof vest to the proceeding and was escorted by a special response team.

Keith also faces charges of robbery and burglary in the Sept. 20 shootings at ABC Gold Games and More.

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.
