Amy Nunn was arrested Friday in Bowling Green after police received a call about a reckless driver. It turns out that driver, Amy Nunn, was wanted for murder in neighboring Barren County.
On January 2, 2007 police responded to a burglary call at the home of Amy and Joseph Nunn. When investigators first questioned Amy about her husband's shooting, she told them she had seen two men in ski masks leave their house. From that point on, Glasgow Police had questions about who killed Joseph Nunn.
"They feel that physical evidence obtained at the scene is inconsistent with allegations on statements made by Mrs. Nunn as to what occurred in their home that evening," said Barren County Commonwealth Attorney, Karen Davis.
Police found Nunn's body in the couple's bed. Investigators say he had been shot three times in the back of the head. Up until now, police did not consider Amy Nunn a suspect, but now say they have evidence that proves she was behind her husband's death.
Nunn is charged with murder and tampering with evidence at her husband's murder scene. She is being held at the Barren County Regional Jail on a $250,000 bond.
Police say the Nunn's children were home at the time of the shooting. Amy Nunn will be in court again on March 9, 2007 for a bond reduction hearing, at that time a trial date may also be set.
