Grand jury to hear case of fifth Glass Avenue home invasion suspect

Another suspect accused in the armed home invasion at the Glass Avenue residence of Charles “Bird Dog” Paige will have his case heard by a Christian County grand jury following a preliminary hearing Friday in Christian District Court.

Hopkinsville Police Detective Jason Sears testified that while 24-year old Michael Sims claims he was only involved in the planning of the incident, other suspects say he was there.

Sims is charged with complicity to first-degree robbery.

Other suspects charged in the incident include 24-year-old Ajaizion Johnson, 19-year-old Isaiah Campbell, 30-year-old Marshall Austin and 18-year-old Korey Zivotin. Detective Sears says two other suspects haven’t been charged yet.

Multiple suspects entered Paige’s home and gunfire was exchanged, but no one was injured, with Sears saying police believe Campbell fired the first shot.

He says the suspects believed Paige had up to $70,000 in cash on the premises that they had planned to split.

District Judge Foster Cotthoff determined there was probable cause to forward the case to the grand jury for consideration.
