WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — The man accused of killing four members of a Whitley County family is due in court Monday.

Paul Brock faces a hearing in the February crime spree.

The last time Brock was in court was nearly two months ago when Corbin police laid out the case against the 37-year-old.

Officers say Brock fatally shot 45-year-old Aaron Byers, his 33-year-old wife, Tiffany, who was pregnant at the time, and Tiffany’s 74-year-old grandmother, Mary Jackson.

Police testified that the women were killed in Jackson’s home.

They said Tiffany’s brother heard the shooting from another room, fled and later led investigators to Brock. Then Brock’s stepsons led officers to land Brock owns, where Byers’ body was found.

"Beside the shovel and the mattock that were laying in the wooded area, just right off the road, we discovered Mr. Byers body," said Corbin police Lt. Coy Wilson. "It was covered with a little bit of leaves and a little bit of dirt."

Brock remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center on $1 million bail.
