A triple murder trial moved from Christian County because of pre-trial publicity to Elizabethtown has begun and is being broadcast on Court TV.

Christian “Kit” Martin, 52, is accused in the 2015 deaths of Calvin and Pamela Phillips and their neighbor Ed Dansereau in Pembroke.

Calvin Phillips was found shot in his home, while Pamela Phillips and Dansereau were discovered a few miles away in the charred remains of a car, according to story accounts.

Martin, a former Fort Campbell soldier and later a commercial pilot, was arrested as he was ready to board a plane in Louisville.

Investigators have said Calvin Phillips was scheduled to appear as a witness in Martin’s court-martial for sex abuse two weeks before being killed.
