SYMSONIA, KY (November 11, 2017) – Kentucky State Police have arrested Doug A. Becker. At approximately 6:15 p.m., Marshall County Dispatch received a call from a citizen reporting a male matching the description on Phelps Road, near Symsonia Highway in Marshall County.

KSP Troopers responded to the area and located Becker. He was taken into custody without incident. Troopers have transported Mr. Becker to a local hospital for medical clearance, due to his prolonged (overnight) exposure to cold temperatures.

Once medically cleared for incarceration, he will be lodged in the Graves County Jail. His charges, from the arrest warrant issued last night, will be First Degree Burglary, First Degree Unlawful Imprisonment, Attempted Murder, two counts of Fourth Degree Assault, and three counts of First Degree Wanton Endangerment.

The investigation is continuing by Detective Eric Fields. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555.
