All Suspects In Winchester Shooting Plead Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

WINCHESTER, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Two teenage girls have been killed in a shooting Tuesday night. Now, four people have been arrested in connection with the case.

It happened around 9 p.m. on East Washington Street. 

Kayla Holland and Adrianna Castro, both 16, were shot and killed, according to the coroner. One girl died at the scene and the other passed away at the hospital.

The family of Kayla Holland said that donations to help pay for the funeral can be made out to the Scobee Funeral Home. If you'd like to help, here's a link to their website and contact information: http://www.scobeefuneralhome.com/

Longtime resident Joyce White says at first she thought she heard fireworks but her heart dropped when she went outside to check.

"I thought it was firecrackers," White said, "but then I got out and came to the door and saw all the people yelling and knew this it was done."

She said she is heartbroken for the families involved.

"I can't imagine how they feel," White said. "I'm shocked and sorry for them and just wish it hadn't have happened."

A young woman tells LEX 18 she was at a nearby Dairy Queen when she heard four to five shots, and then saw people flee the scene.

Authorities identified Darian Skinner, 22, and Denzel Hill, 24, as being involved in a gunfight around the area where the victims were killed.

Police also arrested Mikaela Buford, 18, in connection to the incident. According to her arrest citation, Buford drove three men to the scene of the shooting, waited and then drove one gunman from the scene.

Skinner, Hill and Buford are facing murder charges in the case. A fourth suspect, Ronnie Ellis, has turned himself in to authorities. They were arraigned on their charges Wednesday morning and pleaded not guilty. Bond has been set at $1 million for all the suspects.

LEX 18 News spoke with Kayla's mother on Wednesday. She says she was too heartbroken to go on camera, but told us that her daughter wanted to be a veterinarian and that she had so much potential in life.

Now, instead of preparing Kayla for graduation, she's planning her funeral she says she can't afford. She'd like to give Kayla a proper burial, and hopes the money raised can help with that.

Amy Holland also gave a brief statement: "I feel so empty inside. A piece of my heart is gone. I never want to wish this on my worst enemy. It just hurts so bad. I know the mothers of the kids (involved) are probably upset as well. But at least they still have their kids and can go see them. They took that away from me, and I can't see my daughter. But one day we will be reunited in heaven together."

Adrianna Castro's funeral will be on Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Scobee Funeral Home. The visitation will start at 10 a.m. She will be buried in Clarmont Memorial Gardens.
