In a matter of five days, there were some big development in connection to a 2016 Bardstown murder.
Two people have been arrested and charged in the murder of 61 year-old Michael Wayne Unseld.
On June 3, 2016, someone shot Unseld above what used to be the Broken Tee Nite Club on West Stephen Foster Avenue in Bardstown. He later died at the hospital.
On Friday August 16, 2019, Bardstown police arrested 26 year-old Robert Tate and charged him with murder. An arrest slip says witnesses told detectives Tate admitted to killing Unseld.
Just four days after Tate’s arrest, on Tuesday (8/20), Bardstown police arrested 25 year-old Evan Lyons for conspiracy to murder in the case. He was also arrested for a probation violation and drug charges. An arrest slip says an eye witness said Lyons “acted with Zachary Tate in the murder.”
It is unclear if Unseld knew Tate or Lyons and police have not released a motive.
Both men are lodged in the Nelson County jail.
