Posted: Updated:

OAK GROVE, Ky. – Three men have been charged with murder in connection with a cold case in Christian County, Kentucky.

Officials with the Kentucky State Police said 39-year-old Frank Black, Jr., 43-year-old Edward T. Carter, and 50-year-old Leslie Duncan have been indicted by a grand jury in connection with a double murder.

The murder occurred at the New Life Massage Parlor in Oak Grove, Kentucky on September 20, 1994. Police said a co-worker found the bodies of Gloria Ross and Candida Belt. They said they had been shot and stabbed to death.

Investigators said Black and Carter, a former Oak Grove Police Officer, were responsible for the women's death. Police said Duncan, also a former police officer and lead investigator on the initial case, faces two counts of complicity to murder. They said Black and Duncan also did janitorial work for the business at the time of the murder.

Officials said Black was taken into custody by officials in Alabama. They said Duncan had already been serving three years in the Christian County Jail for tampering with evidence. According to police, Carter was arrested at a hotel in Warren County, Ohio and would be extradited back to Kentucky.

All three suspects have been booked on $1 million bond.
