The victims of the attack were Tonya Huy, 48, and her parents, Ronald Koehler, 71, and Linda Koehler, 78. 

When he was arrested, Huy told deputies, “I got tired of it and killed all three of them,” according to arrest records obtained by WAFB9.

“I shot my wife and her mom and her step-dad. Cold blooded murder this afternoon. Shot them each twice in the head,” Huy said when deputies began to question him, according to the arrest records.

“Her mom moved in on me and Ronald would just come and show up at the house whenever,” Huy told investigators, according to the arrest report from WAFB9.

“I felt intruded on, I felt disrespected, you know. I pay the f***ing bill on that place so that gives me some say,” Huy said. “Linda burrowed in like a tick and made it obvious she wasn’t going anywhere and she knew I wasn’t happy about it.”

After he was arrested, Huy requested he be placed in a jail cell by himself. 

“Now that I’ve murdered three people I’ve got nothing holding me back,” he said, according to WAFB9

Huy was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of armed criminal action. He is being held in the Greene County Jail without bond.
