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.
COLUMBIA, Ky. (AP) - A southern Kentucky man has been freed on bond after a judge determined he was incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge stemming from shooting seven years ago.
Wellie Paul Grant stands charged with shooting and killing 46-year-old Rex Coffey at Beech Grove Separate Baptist Church in Adair County during a dispute in June 2006.
On Friday, a judge cited Grant's declining physical health and dementia in releasing him on bond and concluding he was unable to stand trial. Grant's bond includes provisions that he can't operate a motor vehicle, or possess a firearm, and he's not allowed to leave his home without the company of an adult family member.
Coffey's sister, Pam Cundiff, told WBKO-TV in Bowling Green her family doesn't feel safe with Grant being released.
