Pilot Arrested At Airport For Triple-Murder
Passengers at Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport were in shock to learn that their travel was delayed because their pilot was arrested for a triple-murder.
Saturday morning, 51-year-old Christian Richard Martin--a pilot for American Airlines subsidiary PSA Airlines--was indicted on three counts of murder, one count of arson, one count of attempted arson, first-degree burglary and three counts of tampering with physical evidence. When the 2015 killings occurred, one of the victims was found shot to death in his home and the two other victims were found in a burned up car in a corn field miles away.
Following the murders, authorities say Martin moved from Christian County to North Carolina, where he had been living at the time he was indicted. Martin is being held at the Christian County Detention Center.
In a statement, the airline says:
All of us at American Airlines and PSA Airlines are deeply saddened to have learned about these allegations from 2015. We will provide any investigative assistance possible to law enforcement throughout their investigation.
