LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- State police say they have charged a former Kentucky lawmaker with six counts of wanton endangerment after he brandished a gun in a rural cemetery.

Trooper Charles Swiney and Lt. David Jude confirmed Steve Nunn's arrest Friday, hours after the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend.

The Fayette County Coroner's Office says 29-year-old Amanda Ross was shot to death outside her town house early Friday.

Authorities say they found Nunn at the Cosby cemetery in Hart County. Swiney says Nunn had what appeared to be self-inflicted but not life-threatening wounds to his wrists.

He has not been charged in the slaying. A message seeking comment was left on his cell phone.

Ross was an employee of the Kentucky Department of Insurance. She was found shot outside her home in a gated community.
