Pilot arrested in triple homicide case as passengers await boarding

Passengers at a Kentucky airport were shocked to learn their flight would not be taking off after their pilot had been arrested as they waited to board the plane.

They said that when they heard their pilot had been arrested at the airport early Saturday, they assumed he had been drinking alcohol on the job.

More than three years after a triple homicide in a small Kentucky town, Christian Richard Martin, a pilot for a subsidiary of American Airlines, was arrested in connection with their deaths, authorities said.

Kentucky Attorney General, Andy Beshear, announced that Martin, 51, was indicted on a charge of murder in the deaths of Calvin and Pamela Phillips and Edward Dansereau, who were found dead in 2015 in Pembroke, Ky.

Martin, a pilot for PSA Airlines, was taken into custody at Louisville International Airport on three counts of murder, as well as counts of arson, burglary and tampering with physical evidence
