Floyd County Double Murder Trial Postponed

  • {Kentucky}...A judge has postponed the double murder trial of 47 year old Berry Hall, a Floyd County man charged with the March 2008 murders of 30 year old Lisa Tackett and her husband, 47 year old Allen Tackett. Hall faces two counts of murder and four counts of wanton endangerment. The trial was supposed to start Monday in Floyd County Circuit Court, but it was continued, and a new trial date has not been set. Kentucky State Police say the shootings happened outside the Tackett’s home on Sunflower Lane in Prestonsburg. Police say Hall, who was Lisa's uncle, and the next door couple had been engaged in an ongoing dispute.
