2 charged with murder after man found dead




BULL CREEK, Ky.

Two eastern Kentucky men were arrested and charged with murder after police found a man dead inside a burning home.

Tim Marsillett and Richard Adkins, both of Prestonburg, were arrested early May 24. Kentucky State Police say they were called to a house on fire in the Bull Creek community at 1:10 a.m. on Saturday.

Troopers say they found 46- year-old Tom Bentley inside the house and concluded he had been shot once before the fire.

Marsillett and Adkins were in the Floyd County Detention Center on Monday. It was unclear from jail records if they had attorneys.
