Pike County Murder Investigation Continues

{Pikeville, Kentucky}...Thirty-nine year old Everett Paul Norman of Pond Creek Road in Belcher was indicted this past week on murder in the June 13th shooting death of  30 year old Jesse W. Church of Harold. Pike Commonwealth’s Attorney Rick Bartley said Friday that Kentucky State Police are continuing the investigation into the shooting, which occurred after Norman and Church had been partying with friends the day before. Witnesses at the party told police they didn't recall any conflict between Norman and Church. Bartley said Church was at the party with his girlfriend, Kayla Wolford, before the two left the party and eventually parted ways. Church was shot at close range in the upper chest region with a shotgun. An autopsy indicates Church died from a gunshot wound.
