HINESBURG — This morning, police arrested Kory Lee George, 31, of Williston, on suspicion of first-degree murder, burglary, and obstruction of justice connected to the July 11 shooting death of his step-father, David Auclair, in Hinesburg.

Detectives say they learned that George participated in a coordinated effort to kill David Auclair at the LaPlatte Headwaters Town Forest trailhead parking lot.

Investigators allege George burglarized a Colchester residence where the firearm that was used in the killing was stolen, that he provided false information about his whereabouts at the time of the homicide, and that he requested that individuals contact witnesses and instruct them to continue to lie to the police.

George was transported from the Essex County jail in New York, where he was being held on federal firearms charges.

He is scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. today on the state charges in the Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court in Burlington.
