Former Ky. lawmaker to get competency hearing

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A judge has set an April 5 competency
hearing for a former Kentucky lawmaker accused of killing his
former fiancee.
Fayette County Circuit Judge Pamela Goodwine scheduled the
hearing for former state Rep. Steve Nunn on Friday. She said the
hearing would be open to the public and that defendant Steve Nunn
would join by phone.
Nunn is the son of former Kentucky Gov. Louie Nunn. Police say
the former state representative shot 29-year-old Amanda Ross
multiple times on Sept. 11, 2009, outside her Lexington home. He
has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.
Nunn's attorney, Warren Scoville, said Friday that a doctor has
evaluated Nunn, but he declined to divulge the results of the
evaluation.
