Todd County murder suspect appears for arraignment

Arraignment was held Monday morning in Todd County District Court for the man charged with murder in connection with the Friday morning shooting death of a woman on Heltsley Road near Clifty.

Kentucky State Police allege 44-year old David Odeal Slagle of Lewisburg fatally shot 57-year old Deborah McGee of Heltsley Road near her home.

Public defender Darin Higgs entered a not guilty plea on Slagle’s behalf Monday and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 23.

Higgs told Slagle he’ll be filing a motion to attempt to reduce his bond in the coming days.

Slagle was arrested Saturday morning at a home on Duncan Ridge Road in Logan County.
