Additional charges in Letcher County Assault Case

Additional charges have been filed against a Pike County man already incarcerated for his involvement in an assault.

Thursday, Kentucky State Police say 27-year-old Patrick Smith is being charged with complicity to commit murder and one count of criminal mischief.

Smith and James Huffman were involved in a physical altercation early Wednesday morning, which resulted in the death of Michael Hogg of Whitesburg.

Two other men were injured in the confrontation.

Both Smith and Huffman remain in the Letcher County Detention Center.
