Four More Arrested in Connection with Independence Murder Case

Police have made four additional arrests in connection with the murder of Seth Burns in Independence, Kentucky. This brings the total number of arrests in the case to six. On August 25, police responded to a reported shooting on Archer Court, where they found 23-year-old Seth Burns suffering from a gunshot wound. Despite being airlifted to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Burns succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

One day after the shooting, authorities announced the arrest of a 17-year-old and 20-year-old Xxavion Turner in relation to the homicide. Independence Police have now apprehended four more individuals connected to Burns’ murder. Amanda Turner, 38, has been charged with rioting, complicity to commit murder, and unlawful transaction with a minor. Lakera Hughes, 19, Emma Ryan, 19, and Keavier Turner, 22, face charges of rioting and unlawful transaction with a minor.

Xxavion Turner was already in custody at the Kenton County jail, facing charges of complicity to murder, wanton endangerment in the first degree, and tampering with evidence. The 17-year-old suspect, whose identity will remain undisclosed unless tried as an adult, also faces murder charges. Police believe he is the individual who fired the shots that resulted in Burns’ death.

Authorities previously stated that the shooting appeared to stem from an ongoing dispute between two groups. While Burns’ family believes he died protecting others, police have not confirmed this motive. The investigation is ongoing.
