The Kentucky State Police charged Kristen Shepherd, 16, with murder early this morning in the shooting death Monday night of Marvin Maiden, of Dayhoit, according to KSP Sgt. Damon Gayheart. The shooting occurred at a mobile home off Sutton Drive in Dayhoit around 9 p.m. Also shot at the mobile home was Mark Travis Whitaker Jr., of Loyall. Preliminary information indicates that Whitaker and Shepherd were at Maiden's home when Maiden allegedly shot Whitaker. Shepherd then allegedly shot Maiden, who made it to the front yard of his home before collapsing. Two other individuals were with Whitaker and Shepherd - Mark Whitaker Sr. and Debbie Hall. Whitaker Sr. and Shepherd drove Whitaker Jr. to the Harlan ARH Hospital. Gayheart and trooper Jason Adams responded to the shooting scene to gather information. A request was made by KSP to the Harlan City Police Department to go to the hospital and assess the situation there. Harlan City Police Sgt. Winston Yeary and officers Marvin J. Lipfird and Danny Ball responded. The Harlan City Police officers took custody of Shepherd, and during a pat down search of her, a handgun was confiscated. Shepherd was transported to Post 10, along with the weapon, and turned over to the state police. Shepherd was later turned over to a court designated worker and lodged in a juvenile detention facility. Whitaker was transferred to a Tennessee medical facility, where he was reportedly in serious but stable condition at press time. Kentucky State Police Det. Tim Hensley is in charge of the investigation. He was assisted by Lt. P.J. Burnett, Gayheart, Adams and trooper James Earl Hensley.
