Two arrests made in Louisville baby's murder

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Louisville-Metro police say two men arrested over weekend are linked to last week's shooting that killed one-year-old Ne'riah Miller.

Trey Anderson, 20, Michael Dunn, 24, are charged with murder, attempted murder and wanton endangerment for the shooting that killed Miller and injured her mother, Cierra Twyman, 21.

The two men appeared in court Monday morning.

Police said Tuesday that during questioning, the two confessed to playing significant roles in last Wednesday's shooting in the 100 block of South Market Street, but investigators won't go into specifics about what each man did.

Miller and Twyman were on their porch with other family members, when police said someone walked by and opened fire.

Police aren't ready to release a motive or say who the target in this shooting is.

Lt. Todd Kessinger said investigators have been working around the clock since the shooting and were able to develop information that to bringing the two men in for questioning.

"We've had a lot of people come forward and help us with this case. We've had a lot of people not come forward. So, on the one hand, there's a lack of humanity you see in it. Then on the other hand we had people who wouldn't normally help us come forward," Kessinger said.

Kessinger said the investigation is not over and more arrests are possible.

He also confirmed the family of Miller is under police protection and a squad car has been stationed outside the home around the clock.

Anderson and Dunn are in jail on a $500,000 bond.
