Chesher murder trial set for spring of 2014

Accused of fatally shooting Hiser

William D. Chesher, 62, of Louisville, is accused of fatally shooting Ronnie Hiser at Hiser’s home in the Wisdom community of Metcalfe County.

Hiser’s wife Karen told an investigator that she had been communicating with “Bill” Chesher through Facebook “and that in recent weeks they had began having an affair,” according to a KSP search warrant affidavit.
