SMITH MURDER CASE WAIVED TO GRAND JURY
The case against Richard Smith, who is charged with murder in
connection with the September 5th shooting death of Samantha
Rigney, has been waived to the grand jury. Probable cause was
found following a preliminary hearing held in Wayne District Court
this morning. Smith appeared before District Judge Robyn
Williams, along with his attorney Mark Stanziano.
The court heard testimony from Detective Doug Boyd with the
Kentucky State Police, who is in charge of the investigation in the
murder case. Boyd said that witnesses allege that Smith rode
up to the Rigney residence on horseback at around 11 p.m. on
Saturday, September 5, where the family and a family friend,
along with three small children, were sitting on the porch.
Witnesses said that Smith pulled out a pistol and began to fire
Samantha Rigney was shot once in the head, according to police.
Smith was taken into custody a few hours after the shooting, and
Boyd said he appeared to be very intoxicated at the time. He
remains lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center. Williams
set bond for Smith at $250,000 cash only.
