Powell County Man Stabbed To Death Inside Home

Authorities in Powell County have made an arrest hours after a deadly stabbing.

Kelly McCoy, 50, was found stabbed to death Saturday around 5:30 p.m. inside a home on First Avenue in Clay City. Terrance Wagner, 67, is charged with McCoy's murder.

"This is a bad neighborhood right here, but I never expected nothing like this," said Linda Townsend, McCoy's sister. "Kelly didn't deserve anything like this... his 15 year old son saw his daddy laying there like that."

The disabled 50-year-old was a father of two. His family describes him as a man who gave without ever asking for anything in return.

"Even when he was a child, he would do anything for anyone. He'd give the shoes off his feet. The shirt off his back. He'd come home from school with no jacket on," Townsend said.

"He was a really good, kind-hearted person. Do anything for anybody and I don't see how somebody could do this," said Tiffany Sullivan, McCoy's grandniece.

Investigators said McCoy was fatally stabbed in the stomach, following what police simply call an argument. The details of that argument have not been released.

"This is what he gets? Death? It's not right. It's not right," said Townsend.

McCoy's body has been taken to Frankfort for autopsy. Funeral arrangements are pending.
