According to WBKO, Danny Cobb, 59, of Graham, Kentucky, was arrested Aug. 12 and charged with two counts of murder and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs after a Muhlenberg County Grand Jury returned indictment warrants for an October 2021 crash that killed Charlie E. House, 60, and Kimberly L. House, 52, of Greenville.

At a little after 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, 2021, the Kentucky State Police Post 2 in Madisonville was called to a two-vehicle fatal crash on KY-175, north of Graham. According to WBKO, the Houses were on a 2018 Harley-Davidson motorcycle on KY-175 north when a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado operated by Cobb was traveling south on the highway.
