BATH COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A judge ruled there is probable cause to send a case against three people charged in connection to a Bath County murder to a grand jury.

32-year-old Brittany Reed, 32-year-old Michael Walker, and 42-year-old Christopher "Rooster" Turner were arrested and charged in connection to a murder that occurred July 25.

Walker and Reed were charged with complicity to murder and Turner was charged with murder. All three are lodged in Rowan County Detention Center.

A judge ruled that Turner's bond would remain the same at $1 million. He will review the bond of Reed and Walker and rule at a later date.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, KSP Detective David Zimmerman testified that Earl Stevens died from multiple gunshot wounds. Zimmerman said a woman named Angel Crouch, who was staying with Stevens, witnessed Turner shoot Stevens. Zimmerman said Walker admitted to driving Turner and Reed to Stevens' home. Walker also admitted to entering the home with Turner when questioned by KSP.
