A suspect awaiting trial for a charge of conspiring to kill his wife was shot dead the day before Thanksgiving last week. The Louisville Courier Journal published a story about the incident.
49-year-old Mark McCane of Floyd Knobs was out on bail and awaiting trial for theft of a firearm as well as conspiracy to commit murder of his ex-wife. Johnny Brown, an employee of McCane’s, had recorded at least eight conversations between himself and McCane where McCane described various ways of killing his ex-wife.
In the conversations, McCane also spoke about various places to dispose of the body. The killing never took place. McCane was supposed to go to trail on January 22, 2018.
Last Wednesday, on Nov. 22, McCane got into an altercation with the homeowner at a residence in the 3000 block of Moccasin Ridge Court. The incident occurred at around 8:00 pm. When Floyd County Sherriff’s Department deputies arrived, they discovered McCane’s body had been riddled with bullets.
The homeowner, David Chin, had been shot in the hand. Emergency services transported the victim to the University of Louisville Hospital. Chin is expected to survive.
Floyd County Sherriff Frank Loop said that they aren’t looking for any other shooters in relation to the incident. Indiana Court records show that the victim hasn’t been charged for shooting and killing McCane.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
