18-year-old arrested, charged in connection with Algonquin homicide

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police have made an arrest days after a homicide in the Algonquin neighborhood.

Kyle Kelly, 18, has been charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the incident on April 10 in the 600 block of Colorado Avenue.
