Former Ursa man indicted on murder charges

Ursa native Brent Burke has been indicted by a grand jury on murder charges.

The charges stem from a double homicide on September eleventh in Rineyville, Kentucky.

KHQA confirmed the indictment with Bob White of the News Enterprise newspaper in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Burke is and Army M-P stationed in Kentucky.

Police say he broke into the home of his estranged wife, shot and killed her and her former mother in law.

During a preliminary hearing, investigators testified one of Burke's children said "daddy shot mommy."

Burke's defense attorney said a toddler's random statement shouldn't be considered credible evidence.

Burke's currently in jail in Kentucky on a two million dollar bond.

No trial date has been set.
