FRANKFORT, Ky.– Attorney General Jack Conway announced the guilty verdict for a Taylor County man charged with complicity to murder. Following its verdict on Tuesday, a Green County Circuit Court jury recommended 61-year-old David Salyers serve 20 years and six months in prison for the murder of Wendell “Gleason” Pyles.

On Oct. 3, 2012, Kentucky State Police arrested Salyers following an investigation into the death of Mr. Pyles, who was shot and killed in September 2012 while working at Tarter Gate Company in Dunnville, Ky. General Conway’s Office of Special Prosecutions handled the prosecution of this case at the request of the Casey County Commonwealth’s Attorney. In early January, the trial was moved to Green County by Casey Circuit Judge Judy Vance.

“I want to commend my Office of Special Prosecutions for its handling of this case, and I appreciate the jury’s careful consideration on the matter,” General Conway said.“Our thoughts, as always, are with the victim’s family in this case.”

Formal sentencing for David Salyers is scheduled for March 7. The trial for Bobby Rigdon, who is also charged with Pyles’ murder, is expected to begin in September in Casey County. General Conway’s Office of Special Prosecutions will also prosecute Rigdon’s case.
