Police were on scene for hours following the shooting death of 58-year old James McPherson.
It happened just before 3:00 Friday afternoon at his home.
Kentucky State Police and Jackson County Sheriff's Deputies responded after reports of multiple gun shots fired.
Police say 50-year old Debra Hays shot McPherson three times, then fled the scene in her black pick up truck.
Witnesses say Hays came back to the scene wearing different clothing. That's when police took her in.
Hays is facing murder charges but a motive is still unclear. Neighbors say Hays rented property from McPherson a couple of years ago.
