PROVIDENCE, Ky. (WFIE) - A man accused of killing another man last Friday in Providence made an appearance in court Friday.

Officials with the sheriff’s office arrested 20-year-old Christopher Rideout after the coroner noticed witness statements didn’t match.

Deputies say those inconsistencies led them to Rideout.

Rideout’s trial will be held in front of a grand jury and is still being held on a $500,000 bond.

Officials say 19-year-old Lonnell Holloway was found shot and killed in the 1700 block of Barnhill Road last Friday.

That’s just south of Providence and directly west of Madisonville.

We’ll update this story as Friday’s hearing develops.
