A grand jury has indicted a southern Kentucky man in the death of a former sheriff in what police have called a possible revenge killing.
Charles Hammer, 81, is accused of shooting former Monroe County sheriff and former Tompkinsville police chief Herbert "Sprocket" Proffitt, 82, in August.
Proffitt arrested Hammer a decade ago, and authorities are investigating whether a desire for revenge prompted the shooting.
