Ky. man served arrest warrant for 2008 murder

TRIGG COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A western Kentucky man has been accused of a 2008 murder.

On Thursday, the Kentucky State Police obtained an arrest warrant on Seth C. Hooks, 28, of Owensboro, for the murder of Harvey Choat in March 2008.

State police say the Owensboro Police Department served the arrest warrant to Hooks and he was taken to the Daviess County Jail.

On September 3, the Trigg County Sheriff's Office received a tip about Hooks. Hooks was interviewed by the Kentucky State Police and the Trigg County Sheriff's Office.

The interview led to KSP getting an arrest warrant and new evidence that linked Hooks to the murder, according to investigators.

The investigation is continuing by detectives who have received assistance from the Owensboro Police Department and the Trigg County Sheriff's Office.
