A man pardoned by former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is facing a murder charge for a second time.
Patrick Baker was released from prison in 2018 following his conviction in state court. Now, he’s being charged again, but this time, by federal prosecutors.
A federal grand jury in London, Kentucky, has indicted Baker on charges of murder, committed during a robbery and kidnapping related to drug trafficking. The indictment accuses him in the 2014 shooting death of Donald Mills, and the theft of oxycodone pills in Knox County.
Baker was arrested Sunday in Frankfort.
