Murder Charge Against Wife Is Dropped

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped charges against a south-central Kentucky woman who was accused of killing her husband.

Thirty-two-year-old Amy Nunn of Glasgow was charged with murder and tampering with evidence in the shooting death of her husband last year. Joseph Nunn was shot three times inside their home. Amy Nunn told investigators she'd seen two men dressed in black wearing ski masks leave their house.

A mistrial was declared in the case last June after a jury deadlocked.

Barren County Commonwealth's Attorney Karen Davis dismissed the charges this week. Davis says that moving forward with a second trial would have likely produced a similar result because there is no new, relevant information in the case.

    So who done it? will they just drop this case as they have soooo many others here in Ky? My dad was murdered 24 years ago and no one has spent a day in jail for that! The judicial system needs to be looked over and modifications done.The law in my dad's case drug their feet and turned their heads to evidence that could have led to an arrest and conviction. Not all cops are this way but at that time, all you needed to know was the right people.
