Two men were indicted on murder charges by a Hopkins County grand jury Tuesday in the deaths of a Hopkins County couple in October.

Dustin McKinney, 23, and Eddie Goodnight Jr., 40, were each indicted on two counts of murder and first-degree robbery in the deaths of Lynn Moore and his wife, Mary Ann Moore.

On Oct. 30, a concerned family member went to the Moores' home at 13009 Nortonville Road, Dawson Springs, to check on the couple and found them dead inside the residence.

Mary Ann Moore died of multiple injuries, and Lynn Moore died of a gunshot wound, according to Hopkins County Coroner Dennis Mayfield.

Commonwealth's Attorney David Massamore said when the defendants are arraigned on a future date, his office will oppose bond because of the seriousness of the charges. He said he does not expect the men to face trial until late 2010, "at the earliest."

Massamore complimented the Hopkins County Sheriff's Department for its handling of the case. Detectives Matt Sanderson and Shawn Bean spent many hours on the investigation, he said.

"It was a pretty challenging case," Sanderson said, adding that the Moores' family had been "very supportive." Goodnight is the nephew of Mary Ann Moore.

Charges were filed against McKinney and Goodnight about three weeks after the incident. At one point, Sanderson said he and Bean worked more than 24 hours straight when tracking McKinney, whom they located in Graves County.

The deputies didn't want to take a chance on losing the suspect. "We felt we needed to stay on it," Sanderson said.

Goodnight was located in Minnesota. Sanderson and Bean also discovered he had outstanding warrants in Florida and Colorado.

Sanderson said the capture of the two men was a cooperative effort. The Paducah Police Department, McCracken County Sheriff's Department and Kentucky State Police assisted the Hopkins County deputies, along with the Litchfield, Minn., Police Department and the Meeker County Sheriff's Department.

"When Goodnight was located in Minnesota, the authorities there were wonderful to work with," Sanderson said. "We had a large number of agencies who worked together to get a lot accomplished."
