WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A grand jury indicted two more men accused of a Whitley County triple murder.

Anthony Hester and Darnell Chivers were indicted Monday on three counts of murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of tampering with physical evidence.

The two men are accused of strangling Chris Bittner, Emogene Bittner and Robert Kennedy Jr. in 2017.

Jeremy Hatfield was indicted on similar charges in the same case in March.  His trial was expected to begin Wednesday but was postponed while investigators wait for lab results.

According to the indictments, the three men broke into a home while carrying a weapon before killing the victims.
