KNOX CO., (WCMH) — The Knox County Sheriff’s Office has charged 48-year-old Kevin Remillard with murder in connection to the death of his cousin, 20-year-old Nick Remillard.
According to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, officers responded to the residence on the 400 block of Gaskin Avenue around 12:30 pm.
