Three People Could Appear In Court Later This Month

Three people charged in a weekend murder will be in court later this month.

State police say they received a call Saturday morning from a woman saying she found blood in the Jenkins home of 70-year-old Ralph Marcum.

Officers say they found Marcum's body in nearby Pike County.

37-year old John William Pigg is charged with Marcum's murder.

38-year old Lloyd Steven Pigg and 31-year old Christina Collins are charged with complicity to commit murder.

All three are set to be in court on April 23rd for a preliminary hearing.

They are being held in the Letcher County Jail without bond.

    i would just like everybody to know that it was believed that they took him out of his apartment so he wasn't over there on his own they took him over there and then killed or maybe hit him once at his home because they were blood discovered on his coach so nobody knows the truth but papaw, john, lloyd, christina, and god and nobody will ever know the truth my papaw is dead and my family is suffering from it, we are so scared that they are going to get out scott free and that's not right they should suffer just like they make my papaw suffer i hope and pray to god that he didn't suffer that maybe the first hit knocked him out or killed him right then i don't understand why i know how they done it but i want to know what they need from him he didn't have any kind of drugs and everybody knows he didn't have any money just enough to get him through the month so i wnat to know what they wanted or what they thought he had but whatever it was they killed him for nothing but hopefully life....

    ralph was a kind man who served our country for many years.....not an addict or alcoholic. He had no defense against these mean boys.

    this is what selling drugs to additts and drug additts and drunks ends up a very sad end and usually the weak one that is seeling them pays the ulimate price. It is now up to God and the judge to decide what to do
