The primary suspect wanted in connection to the death of 19-year-old Dawsun Stevens of Sturgis, Kentucky, is now in custody.

The Union County Sheriff confirms 23-year-old Isaac "Chase" Hogan is in custody and facing 1st Degree Assault - and that more charges are a possibility.

Hogan had been on the run for a week until being apprehended on Monday, Aug. 31. He was found by Kentucky State Police and U.S. Marshalls on Monday afternoon just outside of Uniontown.

Stevens died of injuries sustained during a fight, where witnesses of the incident said Hogan picked him up and slammed him on the ground, causing him to hit his head on the pavement, causing him to become unresponsive.

As of now, it's still unclear what led to the fight in the first place.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
