Brother of Rhoden Murder Victim Charged with Evidence Tampering & Vandalism


The brother of one of eight victims of the unsolved Rhoden killings appeared in court today.

James Manley, 40, of Peebles was in Pike County court for a hearing on federal charges of Evidence Tampering and Vandalism over allegations he destroyed a GPS tracking device. A judge set an $80,000 bond. 

Investigators trying to solve the murders from just over a year ago placed the tracking device on Manley's truck last month. Manley was jailed after turning himself in yesterday. His sister, Dana Rhoden, was among the eight members of the Rhoden family found shot to death in four homes near Piketon in April of 2016.
