Memorial service will be held for murder victim

A memorial service will be held Saturday evening for a Letcher County man police say was murdered.

The search for Drad Fleming ended when police found his truck burned and pushed over a cliff last month.

His wife Stephanie Jones and her boyfriend James Maggard were later arrested for Fleming's murder.

The family says they expect many community members and friends to attend the service and that even though there are no indictments yet, the service may provide comfort for the family.

“It’s going to be one of the hardest things that we do. It will give me a little closure but I'm still not completely closed until my son's body gets home,” Kathy Bentley said.

The service is planned for 6pm Saturday at Millstone Missionary Baptist Church.
