Two more people were arrested in an eastern Kentucky murder case.

Four men were already facing murder charges for the June shooting death of Larry Jones.

Police arrested the mother and stepfather of two of those suspects.

Lary and Gloria Perry both lived in a mobile home near the Cumberland River when the murder happened.

Police say it was them who got rid of the murder weapon, the gun, by throwing it into the Cumberland River just behind the mobile home.

They were arrested Friday.

For the first time, those close to the victim, Larry Jones, are talking about how this has devastated their family.

Loved ones of 35 year old Larry Jones, say their family has not been the same since Jones was shot to death on Cape Gap Road in June.

“I consider that the only man we had in our life. My dad passed away and that's we had was my brother,” Lois Vanover said.

Kevin Brimm is one of 5 children he left behind.

“I miss waking up every morning, he'd be outside lifting weights,” Brimm said.

Police are wasting no time finding those they believe are involved in the murder.

They arrested Lary and Gloria Perry, the mother and stepfather of 2 of the 4 men charged with murder.

“Nobody has the right to die like that. They need to sit and think about it and suffer we're suffering because we ain't got him with us,” Lavada Wilder said.

Lary and Gloria Perry are both charged with facilitation to commit murder and tampering with physical evidence.

They were both lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center both on $250,000 bond.

Both are expected to be arraigned early next week.

The four men charged with murder, James A. Anderson, James W. Anderson, John Anderson, and Jason Anderson are all due back in court in November.

All four are related to one another.
