PADUCAH, KY - A man suspected of trying to kill a Paducah man twice is in custody. Police arrested Eric Davis just before nine o'clock Wednesday evening, during a routine traffic stop.

Investigators believe he is responsible for two attacks on 56-year-old Dennis Coley. Investigators believe someone intentionally set a fire in Coley's home early Tuesday morning. A few hours later he went missing. A farmer found Coley early Wednesday morning laying in his yard and took him to the hospital. He is recovering in a local hospital.

Shane Kimble and Luther Haney were also picked up Wednesday afternoon, for their alleged roles in the assault.

Davis was arrested on Clark's River Road Wednesday night by Paducah police. He is being held in the McCracken County jail tonight.
