A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Autopsies are scheduled for a woman and two men killed in what police described as a double murder-suicide in eastern Kentucky.
Kentucky State Police Trooper Ralph Lockard says the medical examinations were set to begin Tuesday on 44-year-old Anthony "Tony" Patterson, his ex-wife, 29-year-old Amy Davis and Davis' fiance, 30-year-old William Cain of Morehead.
All three were killed early Monday at Davis' trailer in Jeffersonville in Montgomery County, about 45 miles east of Lexington.
Lockard said Patterson appears to have broken into Davis' trailer, shot his ex-wife, then Cain before turning the gun on himself. Montgomery County Coroner Wally Johnson told the Lexington Herald-Leader that Davis was pregnant.
Lockard said police are trying to determine a motive for the shootings.
