LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Two men arrested for two separate homicides pleaded not guilty during an initial court appearance Saturday morning.
James Seay, 68, and Guy Allen, 53, appeared in arraignment after being charged in unrelated homicides earlier this week. Both will be appointed public defenders.
Officers arrested Seay Friday morning in the stabbing death of Orville Avis. Officers were called to Dosker Manor in the 400 block of East Muhammad Ali Boulevard just after 7 p.m. Thursday where they found Avis' body. Investigators said a witness led them to Seay on Friday.
A spokesperson for the Kentucky Department of Corrections said Seay previously was convicted in the 1981 murder of Donald Gritton and the 1996 murder of Jimmy Brown. He was released from the Otter Creek Correctional Facility in Wheelwright, KY on December 30, 2011.
Seay is charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence in Avis' stabbing death. He was being held Friday at Metro Corrections on a $100,000 cash bond.
Police arrested White early Friday morning in the shooting death of Jackie Ray.
Ray's body was discovered in the rear of the home in the 2600 block of Duncan Street around 4:45 p.m. Thursday.
According to an arrest slip, White shot Ray after a verbal argument around 8 a.m. Thursday. He told police she had fired a gun toward him first. The arrest report continues to state White told police in the eight hours between the shooting and calling police he buried his gun in an alley behind the scene, picked up all of the shell casings and threw them out of his car window in a separate location. He then dug up his gun and washed it off in a sink.
Once police were notified of the shooting two responding Louisville Metro Police Department cars crashed into each other at the intersection of 26th and Duncan Streets resulting in minor injuries to the officers.
White is charged with murder, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and tampering with physical evidence.
