Grand jury indicts Whitley County mother charged in murders of family

By  | 

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Whitley County grand jury handed down an indictment against Courtney Taylor.

Taylor faces three counts of capital murder and two wanton endangerment charges following her indictment.

Kentucky State Police say Taylor shot and killed her husband Larry, and her two teen daughters, Jolie and Jessie on Friday January 13th. Police say she also raised a gun at two Whitley County Sheriff's deputies when they entered her home.

Taylor was not present in the courtroom on Monday. The Whitley County Sheriff says they moved Taylor to the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women in Pee Wee Valley for holding because they are better suited there to treat her injuries.

A judge will hold an arraignment for Taylor on April 17th.
