Two Men Allegedly Kill Stray Dog To Stage Crime Scene After Assault

Posted: Updated:

MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) – Two men were arrested after allegedly killing a stray dog and using its blood to stage a crime scene.

Jeffrey Spence, 26, and Casey Spence, 19, both of Tomahawk, are charged with first-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespassing, and theft by unlawful taking or disposition (a motor vehicle).

Deputies say both men were arrested Saturday night for falsely reporting an incident. They were arrested again Tuesday afternoon for the additional charges above.

Around 4 a.m. Saturday, a deputy responded to an assault. Investigators say a man, identified as Fred Daniels, was hit in the head with a crowbar four times in the road near his home in Tomahawk.

Daniels, who had to have around 50 staples in his head, said the suspects stole his truck after hitting him.

Later Saturday morning, the suspects said Daniels was at their home with a shotgun. They say he shot at a wall and assaulted them. Casey Spence said he had to hit Daniels with a crowbar in self-defense.

Investigators say there was blood all throughout a home on Orville Road, including on the front porch, staged to look like Daniels’ blood.

Deputies say both suspects have confessed that it was dog blood and that they staged a crime scene. Investigators also say there had been no shotgun blast into the wall, saying the suspects used a nail to damage it.

The truck was recovered several miles on an old rugged logging road near the suspects’ home.

Deputies say the incident is part of a long-running feud between the suspects and Daniels.
