One year ago, a LaFollette mother and Sunday school teacher disappeared from her home without a trace. And one year later, Rhonda Daugherty’s family is still waiting to hold a funeral – to give her a proper goodbye. Daugherty vanished Dec. 2, but her purse, cell phone and keys were still inside her house. Roughly a month later, a grand jury indicted Lonnie Vann, a former Campbell County middle school teacher, on charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and aggravated robbery – all connected to her death. Vann’s trial in Rhonda’s death is set for May 2016. He also is accused of two armed robberies in South Carolina in December 2014. Vann was fired from his Campbell County teaching job for attempting to kiss a 13-year-old student off campus.

From WLEX News

A former Pulaski County preacher charged with three counts of murder has taken the stand to testify during separate hearings in Boyle Circuit Court.

Local media outlets report Kenneth Keith, a former Burnside pastor, testified Monday. He is accused of shooting and killing three people in 2013 at a Danville pawn shop. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

Keith testified that he thought telephone conversations he had with Michigan preacher Tracy Herald were private and privileged.

Keith’s attorneys say the conversations shouldn’t be allowed as evidence because under state law, communications between a person and clergymen are “privileged” and shouldn’t be used against a defendant.

Herald testified that during one telephone conversation, Keith said the victims were not innocent and had cost him “a lot of money.”
