Timothy Claytor of Lewisburg will be going to trial on murder charges beginning Monday, Feb. 25, 2013. The Lewisburg man was charged with the murdering 46-year-old Dale Holloway of Russellville the end of last year.
Claytor is claiming it was self-defense.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Department was called to Claytor’s home on T. McReynolds Road at approximately 10:22 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012, in response to a disturbance involving a weapon. Upon arrival, officers discovered Holloway unresponsive in the front yard with multiple gunshot wounds. According to the sheriff’s office, it appears that Holloway came to the home of Claytor looking for Lori White, a female associate of Holloway. It appears, says police, that some type of argument took place between Holloway and Claytor that resulted in the death of Holloway.
The sheriff’s department said the incident was all caught on video tape. They say Claytor had set up a video surveillance system at his residence after having some trouble with theft in the past. The camera system, which has no audio, caught the entire altercation on tape.
If convicted of murder, which is a Class A felony, Claytor could receive a sentence of 20 years to life in prison.
