Man charged with murdering crime victims' advocate

A man now faces charges for the murder of a central Kentucky woman.

A grand jury has indicted Alastair Couch for murder, being a felon in possession of a handgun, and tampering with evidence, in connection with the death of Tomma Graves.

Graves, a crime victims' advocate, was found dead inside a truck near Harrod Brothers Funeral Home in Frankfort August 2.

Investigators say she died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Graves had been working as a crime victims' advocate in Franklin County since 2007.

Couch was already in jail at the time of the indictment. He was arrested 10 days after Graves was found dead on Robbery charges.

It's alleged Couch, along with someone else, broke into a home and robbed someone at gunpoint while there were children present, according to police citations.
