The Kentucky State Police Post 14, in Ashland, issued a release on January 28 announcing the arrest of Billy G. Reynolds, 41, of Olive Hill, in the plot. The KSP were notified on January 15 on a complaint that Reynolds “had contacted an individual in regards to a murder for hire plot against his mother.” 

The state police announced that, after a “thorough investigation” KSP detectives with the Ashland Post, Ashland Police Department, and the FBI “were able to implicate and arrest” Reynolds for the offense of Solicitation of Murder. Solicitation of Murder is a Class B Felony. 

Reynolds is currently lodged in the Carter County Detention Center and the incident remains under investigation by Detective Kelley with the KSP.
