Arrest in Kentucky cab driver's murder

Four days after the murder of a Kentucky cab driver the man accused of killing him sits in a New York jail cell waiting to answer to the charges.

Police in Oldham County say Miles Matthews, 27, was arrested Sunday in Watertown, New York, during a traffic stop.

New York State Police say when they arrested Matthews, he was driving the victim's silver Chrysler Sebring.

Investigators believe Matthews picked up Adam Gregg at a motel, killed him then went back and stole his car.

Gregg, 34, was found dead last Thursday night in the driveway of a home off Highway 42 in Oldham County. His throat had been cut.

Gregg's father says his son had picked up a man at a motel on Preston Highway.

"He was stabbed and it looked like they struggle. I hope the person that did this sees this and knows what he's done. He's shattered a lot of lives," said the victim's father, Robert Gregg.

Robert Gregg says he's relieved an arrest has been made in his son's murder.

Matthews is scheduled to be arraigned in Jefferson County, New York. For now, he's in jail without bail.

We've also learned New York State Police say heroine might have been involved, but only with Matthews. They say Gregg was just an innocent victim.

New York State Police say it's not clear when Oldham County Police will pick up Matthews to take him back to Kentucky.
