LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Four people charged in connection with the November 12 murders of a mother and her son, remain jailed at the Louisville Metro Corrections. All four appeared in court Wednesday morning.
Marcus Greene and Zachary Kilgore pled not guilty to two counts of murder and other charges. Both are being held on $1 million bond.
Laquita Townsend, who is charged with two counts of complicity to murder and complicity to assault, also plead not guilty and remains
behind bars on $500,000 bond.
The fourth person, Dacica Greene, the wife of Marcus Greene, is accused of trying to dispose of the alleged murder weapon. She pled not guilty to tampering with physical evidence and is being held on $2,500 bond.
50-year-old Diana Wood and her 29-year-old son, Steve Wood, Jr., were shot and killed during an argument at the Whispering Woods apartment complex in southwest Jefferson County.
All four of the suspects are due back in court on November 30.
The fifth person facing charges in connection with the murders, 50-year-old Vickie Ramsey, will appear in court in December 9. Police say Dacica Green placed the handgun used to commit the murders in Ramsey's lunch bag. The gun was found by police when Ramsey, an employee of the day care center owned by the Greenes, tried to leave the building. Ramsey told police she had no knowledge of the gun being used in a crime and was cooperating with detectives. She was cited for tampering with physical evidence.
