Knox County Man Charged With Murder

  • {Kentucky}...Robert Burnett has been charged with murder after Knox County Deputies say he shot 64 year old Charles Pyle multiple times while Pyle was sitting in a chair in the home of Burnett off Moore Creek Road Monday night. Deputies say Pyle, a distant relative, had been living with Burnett until just a few days ago, but Pyle stole one of Burnett's guns, and Burnett kicked him out. Knox County Deputies got a call just before 11:00 P.M. Monday night, and Burnett told them he was the victim of a home invasion. Burnett is being held on $250,000 cash bond. He faces a number of other charges in addition to murder.
