(Louisville, KY) - An airline pilot is under arrest after being charged in the 2015 murder of three people in western Kentucky. 

Christian Richard Martin was arrested in Louisville as he was preparing to help fly a jet to Charlotte, North Carolina.

 

In an indictment unsealed after his arrest, a grand jury charged Martin with the deaths of Calvin and Pamela Phillips and their neighbor, Edward Danserau.

Calvin Phillips was found shot in his home in Pembroke, Kentucky. Pamela Phillips and Danserau were found in a vehicle about a mile away that had been set on fire in a corn field. 

Prosecutors said they would not yet discuss a possible motive. 

 

Martin worked for PSA Airlines, which is a subsidiary of American Airlines. He moved from Kentucky to North Carolina soon after the murders.
