Arrest Made in Floyd County Murder


Authorities arrested 29 year old John Maggard of McRoberts and lodged him in the Floyd County Jail on a complicity to Murder charge.

This is in connection to the death of 36 year old Bill Russell Collins of Leburn in Knott County who was found shot to death in a parking lot north of Prestonsburg earlier this month.

According to the arrest warrant, Maggard and co-defendant Floyd Sexton wrestled with Collins before Sexton allegedly shot and killed Collins.

Sexton and a identified woman are still at large.
