Tim Reynolds
    A Wayne County man is facing a murder charge in the shooting death 
of his brother-in-law. The incident occurred on Tuesday, September 24 
in the Meadow Creek area.
    Tim Reynolds, 55, has been charged with one count of murder and 
tampering with physical evidence, according to information released 
by Kentucky State Police. The charges stem from the shooting death of 
Mark Duncan, 52, of Monticello.
    According to the press release issued by Kentucky State Police, 
Trooper Adam Dodson and Trooper Matthew Parmley responded to the 
scene on Duncan Road, which is located just off Dodson Hollow Road, 
at about 7:43 p.m. Tuesday. The troopers found the victim in the 
road, deceased from apparent trauma.
    He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Wayne County Coroner's 
Office at 8:50 p.m.
    State police said that the primary investigation indicates the two 
family members were involved in a disagreement that led Reynolds to 
shoot Duncan.
    According to the citation filed in the case, Reynolds made the call 
to the local 911 dispatch center informing them that the victim was 
lying unresponsive in the roadway. The citation alleges that Reynolds 
said he shot Duncan multiple times, hit him over the head with a 
wrench and then returned home to report the incident and wait for law 
enforcement to arrive.
    In the citation Reynolds said he and Duncan had an "ongoing 
dispute." Reynolds said that as he drove his truck to his mother-in-
law's home, he saw Duncan's truck stopped in the road. He alleges 
that Duncan began approaching his vehicle. At that time, Reynolds 
told police that he retrieved a handgun from his vehicle, aimed it at 
the subject and fired the gun. He allegedly continued to fire the gun 
until the victim fell to the ground, according to the citation.
    Reynolds told police that he then retrieved a wrench from his 
toolbox and struck Duncan several times over the head before he 
returned to his home.
    Reynolds was lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center. He was 
arraigned in Wayne District Court on Monday, September 30, where he 
entered a plea of not guilty. A preliminary hearing and a bond 
hearing in the case is set for Thursday, October 3 at 8:30 a.m. Bond 
has been set at $1 million cash.
    Reynolds is represented by Lance Turner.
    The victim's body was taken to the State Medical Examiner's Office 
for an autopsy to be conducted. The exact cause of death is pending, 
according to Kentucky State Police.
    Kentucky State Police Detective Eric Moore and Trooper Adam Dodson 
with Post 11 London are continuing the investigation. They were 
assisted at the scene by deputies form the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, Wayne County EMS and the Wayne County Coroner's Office.
