Memorial For Slain Police Chief

CLAY CITY, Ky. (AP) - A permanent display was set up Tuesday to
honor a small town police chief killed in the line of duty.

About 100 people gathered for the memorial ceremony for Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy, who was shot to death while taking a suspect to jail on June 13.

Lacy's badge from when he was a deputy jailer was placed on permanent display near the jail's entrance. Taps were sounded and
there was a 21-gun salute.

Lacy's brother, Powell County Jailer Chester Lacy, said his brother served as deputy jailer from 1997 to 2001.

Powell County resident James Barnett has been indicted on charges of capital murder, escape and theft in Lacy's death. He has pleaded not guilty.
