Former KSP Detective Accused Of Lying While Testifying In Murder Case

Posted: Updated:

CLAY COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) A former Kentucky State Police Detective is facing some serious charges related to accusations that he lied while testifying in a court case involving a gruesome Clay County murder.

A federal grand jury indicted Charles "Jeff" Senters back in May, but the indictment was unsealed recently.

The 41-year-old has been charged with lying while testifying in a federal court case. The case involved the murder of Eli Marcum. In December 2012, Senters was a detective with the State Police when he led the investigation. Marcum went missing in December 2012 and his burned body was found a week later. 

Police charged three people in connection with the case. One was an accused drug dealer in Clay County who allegedly paid to have Marcum killed. An accomplice, Gerald Lee Sizemore, is accused of stabbing Marcum to death. 

During the investigation, Senters, the lead detective at the time, testified in federal court that he got permission by superiors to destroy some evidence in the case including a yellow telephone cord and a small silver knife. His supervisors and the Clay County coroner said that they never authorized those items be destroyed. 

Senters is accused of giving a false statement under oath. 

Attorneys for the accused said that the items could have proven someone else committed the murder of Eli Marcum. 

A KSP spokesman released a statement saying, "The alleged disappointing actions of this individual do not reflect upon the agency of Kentucky State Police as a whole."
