ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WHAS11) – Two former state employees of the Lincoln Village Detention Center have pleaded guilty to official misconduct in connection with the death of a teenager in 2016.
Gynnya McMillen died at the center. She was found unresponsive in her cell. Her cause of death was found to be a rare heart condition.
Reginald Windham and Victor Holt face a fine of $200.
The center closed in mid-June. The Department of Juvenile Justice closed the center to consolidate operations and focus more resources on community-based interventions to better protect public safety.
