HUNTINGBURG — A second arrest has been made in Huntingburg as part of an ongoing murder investigation in Louisville.

Chambers
Trusty

Huntingburg police, acting on a Jefferson County, Ky., warrant for the charge of murder, arrested 18-year-old Destiny Trusty, 109 E. 17th St., on Monday afternoon.

The Louisville Metropolitan Police Department is conducting an investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Darius Miller Jr. of Louisville. The shooting occurred shortly after midnight Saturday in the parking lot of a closed Walgreen’s drug store on the city’s west end, at 35th and Broadway streets.

Kyle J. Chambers, 22, of 702 Shelby St., was taken into custody at his home early Sunday morning regarding the same incident. He is being held at the Dubois County Security Center on a murder warrant.

Police searched for Trusty for several hours Monday before receiving a tip that she wanted to turn herself in.

Trusty met with officers at an undisclosed location and was placed under arrest. She was lodged at the county security center at about 3:30 p.m.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department assisted.

Authorities said Chambers and Trusty have waived extradition, clearing the way for them to be taken to Louisville.

Louisville police spokesman Dwight Mitchell confirmed the second arrest but said the department had no further details to release today in what is an ongoing investigation.
