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.
JENKINS, Ky. (WKYT/AP) - An eastern Kentucky coroner says a man fatally shot three people whom he suspected of theft and then turned the gun on himself.
Authorities found the four bodies early Friday morning in two different homes about a mile apart in the tiny community of Jenkins on the Kentucky-Virginia border.
Letcher County Coroner Marty Baker says 58-year-old Timothy Shelby used a Glock pistol. Killed were 35-year-old Jennifer Walters, 25-year-old Joshua Wyatt and 31-year-old Amy Ratliff.
Baker says Shelby suspected the trio of stealing from him. Shelby and Walters lived together in a home on Oak Street, where Walters' body was found. Wyatt and Ratliff's bodies were found in a home on Ginseng Drive.
Police were called after two juveniles found a body around 2 a.m. on Friday morning.
