Bond set for Kentucky man charged with killing Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy

CLINTON COUNTY, IL — Bond has been set at $5 million for a 40-year-old Hopkinsville, Kentucky man charged with first-degree murder for the shooting death Wednesday morning of Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Riley on Interstate 64 near Mill Shoals. Ray Tate appeared via a Zoom conference from the Clinton County Jail at Carlyle where he remains following the end of his two-state crime spree. According to court documents, the charge claims Tate intentionally shot Deputy Riley multiple times about the head and body with a handgun causing his death.

No other charges have been filed at this time against Tate who is accused of multiple carjackings, shootings, kidnappings, and a home invasion of a rural Carlyle home where a State SWAT team ultimately took him into custody Wednesday afternoon. Leonard Cox, the Carlye homeowner and hostage told told KMOV TV that he was following news of the manhunt when someone knocked on his patio door. Cox said Tate then pointed a gun at him, forced him to stash a car he was driving, and then forced Cox and the man who was in the carjacked vehicle into the basement as police moved closer. Cox said he just tried to remain calm because Tate was all over the place and he already knew he shot a cop and someone else. The two were released unharmed from the basement after Tate had been apprehended.
