  Keith was arrested Wednesday and charged with three counts of murder and robbery. Keith is a pastor in Burnside and has a gold-buying business in Somerset.
 
   Hockensmith said Thursday he's sickened by the arrest of his brother's friend in the Sept. 20 slayings at ABC Gold, Games and More.
 
   Hockensmith says there had been conflict over the pawn shop's sale. Also, he says his brother had sold gold to Keith but shifted business to someone else.
 
   Killed in the shootings were Michael and Angela Hockensmith and Daniel Smith.
