New criminal charges are being levied against a Leitchfield woman awaiting trial for her alleged role in the 2017 shooting death of a Lebanon Junction man, and two others are being accused of conspiring with her to steal from the victim.

During the May meeting of the Grayson County Grand Jury, 37-year-old Tiffany Durbin, of Leitchfield, 39-year-old Nicholas Horn, of Big Clifty, and 40-year-old Brian D. Lee, of Leitchfield, were all indicted on the charges of engaging in organized crime, syndication; tampering with physical evidence; and theft by unlawful taking or disposition, greater than $10,000 but less than $1 million for allegedly conspiring to steal the property of Lebanon Junction man Robert Hayes on April 1, 2017.

Hayes was fatally shot on April 1, 2017 by Tiffany Durbin's ex-husband, 41-year-old Chad Durbin, who pleaded guilty to murder and two other charges relating to the death last month. Court documents say that Hayes was in a relationship with Tiffany Durbin at the time of his death.

The indictments allege that Tiffany Durbin, Horn, and Lee conspired to take Hayes' property on April 1, 2017 and succeeded in taking motorcycles and other property in excess of $10,000.

Lee was arrested on an indictment warrant for the aforementioned charges on Thursday, May 9 and lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on a $10,000 full cash bond.

Tiffany Durbin remains lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on her previous charges relating to Hayes' death, and she is scheduled to be arraigned on the three new charges on June 18. She declined a plea deal last month and is scheduled to be tried for the charges of complicity to commit murder, tampering with physical evidence, and abuse of corpse in Grayson Circuit Court July 29 through Aug. 2.

Chad Durbin accepted a deal last month in which he, in exchange for entering a guilty plea to the charges of murder, tampering with physical evidence, and abuse of corpse in relation to Hayes' death, would receive a sentence of 25 years in prison. He is also expected to testify at his ex-wife's upcoming trial.

Chad Durbin is scheduled to be sentenced this coming Tuesday, May 21 at 1 p.m. in Grayson Circuit Court.
