Murder charge to be amended, trial date set in Oak Grove fatal shooting case

Charges are set to be amended and a trial date has been set in the case against Tyron Holt, who is charged in connection with the May fatal shooting death of Gailon Toler in Oak Grove.

Holt appeared alongside public defender Rick Sanborn, who requested a bond reduction for his client, citing that Holt is not the one who pulled the trigger in this incident and his bond should reflect that.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Rick Boling argued that Holt is the reason there was a death that day, but he is willing to amend the murder charge down to complicity to murder.

Christian Circuit Judge Andrew Self advised him to make the amendment and denied the request for bond modification.

Trial was set to begin March 13 and last approximately a week—another pretrial conference was set for November 30.  Toler was shot multiple times at the steps and entryway of a Tyler Street mobile home in May of this year. Toler was pronounced dead at the scene by the Christian County Coroner’s Office.
