LIBERTY, Ky. (AP) — A third person has been charged in connection with the death 2 ½ months ago of a central Kentucky gate company employee.

Kentucky State Police say detectives arrested 53-year-old Anthony L. Byrd of Dunnville in Casey County on Tuesday after he was indicted on a charge of facilitation to commit murder and hindering prosecution. The charges stem from the death Sept. 26 of Wendall "Gleason" Pyles.

In October, police arrested William "Bobby" R. Rigdon on a murder charge and 59-year-old David Salyers of Elk Horn on a charge of complicity to commit murder.

Police say Pyles was shot and killed while working at Tarter Gate Co. in Dunnville.

Investigators expect more arrests in the case.
