Funeral set for doctor shot inside clinic

HAZARD, Ky. (AP) - A funeral service has been scheduled for
Saturday for the doctor who was shot to death inside his Perry
County clinic.
Coroner Jimmy Maggard said the funeral for Dennis Sandlin will
be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Maggard's Mountain View Chapel in
Hazard with burial at York-Wooton Cemetery in Buckhorn. Visitation
is 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at Maggard's Mountain View Chapel.
Maggard said an autopsy has confirmed Sandlin died from a single
gunshot wound to the head.
John Combs has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in
Sandlin's death and was jailed on $10 million bond. Police say
Combs returned Leatherwood/Blackey Clinic with a gun Tuesday after
he was denied pain pills earlier in the day.
