Arrest made for 79-year-old man's murder

Investigators have charged a Southern Kentucky man in the home invasion death of another.

Investigators were called to a home on Kentucky 1247, south of Eubank, just before 4 a.m. Tuesday in Pulaski County.

That's where authorities found the body of 79 year old Jack Roernik, who had been stabbed multiple times.

Police arrested Michael Abner, who was found hiding under his mobile home nearby.

Items taken from Roernik's home were reportedly found in Abner's home.

Abner has been charged with murder.

Authorities say it appears both men were just acquaintances.
