LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A grand jury in Lexington has indicted a former state lawmaker on charges of murder and violating an emergency protective order in the fatal shooting of his former fiancee.
Fayette Circuit Judge Kim Bunnell read the charges against Steve Nunn, son of former Gov. Louie Nunn, in open court Tuesday.
The charges stem from the Sept. 11 shooting death of 29-year-old Amanda Ross outside her Lexington home. Nunn, a former gubernatorial hopeful, was arrested at a Hart County cemetery the day of Ross' death. Police found him with apparent self-inflicted wounds.
Nunn has pleaded not guilty.
