Dad to be arraigned in killings of 8 members of another family
Forty-seven-year-old George “Billy” Wagner III will be arraigned Tuesday on 22 counts in Pike County court.
The Wagners are charged in the 2016 shootings of seven adults and a teenager from the Rhoden family. An attorney who has represented the Wagners has said they’ll be vindicated.
Twenty-six-year-old Edward “Jake” Wagner, 27-year-old George Wagner IV and 48-year-old Angela Wagner are being held without bond. The court is prohibiting lawyers and authorities involved from publicly discussing their cases.
Authorities have suggested a possible motive was a custody dispute over Jake Wagner’s daughter with one of the victims.
