 SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) -- Officials say a defense attorney well known in his small, southern Kentucky town has been shot and killed outside of his law office.
 
   Somerset police say 57-year-old Mark Stanziano was shot multiple times about 8 a.m. Friday morning outside his downtown office.
 
   Police have arrested 40-year-old Clinton Inabnitt of Somerset. They say witnesses have told them the man had been in contact with Stanziano on Thursday evening and had previously threatened the attorney.
 
   Somerset is a town of 11,000 in Pulaski County in southern Kentucky.
 
   In 2002, a former Pulaski County sheriff was killed in a plot at a political rally. Stanziano represented the man charged with the murder.
 
   A biography on Stanziano's law practice website says he had 30 years' experience in criminal cases.
