WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Friends and family of a murdered northern Kentucky couple are continue searching for their bodies.
State police say Robert Jones and Crystal Warner were last seen alive at a Washington County cabin on July 3rd.
Family members say they were checking on the property Jones owned because he was having some issues with the tenant. Five days later that tenant, Craig Pennington, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
While police have yet to find the couples' remains, a witness told them he saw Pennington shoot and kill the couple.
On Thursday, family members received some help from the nonprofit organization KYK9 search dogs. The search teams spent time working the area the couple was last seen alive.
"The family would like to feel confident to clear the area where the murder occurred. So we have come with our search dogs, they are human remain detection dogs and we are searching the property. The Sheriff and state police know we are doing this. The family really wanted this done so we thought it would be a good thing to accomplish," explained Jennifer Jordan Hall.

There is another search planned in Clark County on Saturday. The search is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. Folks wanting to help are asked to check-in at Mt. Zion Christian Church in Winchester.
