seriously...I agree with you. How does the people on here know without a doubt that Tyler lied? Unless they were there, they do not know anything except what the news tells them. It is impossible to draw an educated conclusion from media.

Well, the TRUTH will be out SOON and the one or ones behind the death will be charged and IT WILL NOT BE, TYLER BROCK. There is a mastermind behind this act and they are trying to make a 21 year old kid take the blame for it. How could someone live with themselves??!!!!!! The TRUTH will PREVAIL!! God Bless you, Tyler.

But it did.I hope it never happens to you. But I also hope you never have a child as thooughtless and mean and full of the devil as you. That would truly be a waste of life. We are what we are and my child with all his plusses and minuses has more dignity and humanity in a hair follicle than you have shown in all your dopeman glory.I pray for you and the one who MURDERED this other poor guy. Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. I will repay.

LANCASTER — Attorneys for murder suspect Tyler Brock said they needed more time to go over possible evidence and discuss a possible plea deal with Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Lockridge before they were ready to set a trial date in the case.

Brock appeared before Garrard Circuit Judge Hunter Daugherty Friday for a pretrial conference, which was continued until Jan. 6.

Brock, 21, is under indictment for the June 12 beating death of Shawn K. Akridge at a group home in Paint Lick, where Brock worked and Akridge was a resident. He has been free on bond since September.

Attorney Micheal Murphy said he has not had a chance to look at Akridge’s medical records from when he was a resident at Oakwood in Somerset, before he was moved to the group home for mentally challenged residents in Paint Lick.

Lockridge said he has Akridge’s medical records from Oakwood dating back about 10 months prior to his move to Paint Lick but said they don’t contain any information relevant to his death. Nonetheless, the prosecutor agreed to turn the records over to Brock’s attorneys before the Jan. 6 hearing.

The two sides will have other business to discuss at that meeting.

“I still haven’t talked to Mr. Lockridge to see if there is a way to resolve this without a trial,” Murphy told Daugherty.

Afterward, Murphy told a reporter that seeking information from prosecutors about what kind of plea deal might offered “is common when the stakes are as high as this.”

“I wouldn’t read too much into that,” he said.

In previous filings in the case, Brock’s attorneys have requested prosecutors turn over to the defense any incriminating oral statements Brock may have made to other employees and any written or spoken confessions he might have issued.

Police were called to the home on Wallacetown Road on June 12 in response to an altercation and initially charged another resident, Chester Watkins, with Akridge’s murder, based on what an unidentified employee who said he witnessed the fight told officers.

The charge against Watkins was dropped a few days later, however, and the investigation reopened. Brock was indicted later for “beating and kicking” Akridge to death, and also for neglect and/or abuse of Akridge, who was “unable to manage his own resources or carry out the activity of daily living,” according to the indictment

Unless poor Mr Akridge has family that will stand up for him and defend his right to live as a human being, I doubt this case will go anywhere.If it goes to trial and Brock is found guilty of anything, he is more likely to get a stiffer punishment than he will from an out of court decision.If he is found guilty I'd say he'll find out what a bully really is when he gets to a real prison.

Humm, excuse me but a human being has lost their life. Regardless of who did it, or how it happened, some of us do care about the victim and are entitled to inquire about his case. This is not an attempt to stir things up, it's an inquiry as to what's going on. If the young man in jail is innocent or WHATEVER, then that is still a separate issue from the fact that someone has died and justice deserves to be sought. Im Simply advocating for the first victim in this case. If the trial proves that there are other victims (such as Mr. Brock) then you'd better hope that people maintain their interest in seeking justice for him as well. Shame on you.

does anyone know how you can get info about the trial when it happens? Are there ways to getpublic records or to follow an advocacy group (Facebook?) that we can follow to find out what's going on. I'm worried the news doesn't care about this and won't be following it.
