FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- State police say an Ohio couple has been jailed and murder warrants issued for them in a brutal Indiana killing after the two stopped in Kentucky and asked troopers for directions.
Kentucky state police say 33-year-old James F. Griffith and 21-year-old Lacy D. Bradley, both of Rockford, Ohio, remained lodged Friday in the Franklin County Detention Center.
Police say they face extradition to Indiana after authorities there issued murder warrants Thursday. The two had stopped at a gas station last week and asked police for directions, and police searched the van after discovering problems with the license plates.
Police said they found drugs along with stolen weapons and a stolen antique coin collection that had belonged to an 81-year-old Marion, Ind., man found beaten to death in his home July 27.
