Quick work by the community and Hopkinsville Police has resulted in an arrest of the suspect in a murder on McHenry Street in less than 12 hours. Captain Mike Seis says officers were called to an apartment complex in the 1900 block of McHenry Street around 1:30 Saturday morning.
Seis says 29-year old Quinton Thomas Quarles was taken into custody a short time later.
The victim, 35-year old Keith Ivory, was pronounced dead on the scene by Christian County Coroner Doris Lamb. Seis says they believe the incident started as a fight over money.
Captain Seis says they want to thank the community for their help in the investigation.
Quarles is being held in the Christian County Jail on a charge of murder.
