Woman Recovering After Being Shot By Her Husband

A Harrison County woman remains in critical condition after investigators say her estranged husband shot her.

It happened along Smith-Martin Road near Cynthiana.

Ruby Willis was shot several times, with wounds in her stomach, neck, and head.

She apparently had just filed for divorce days ago, and had returned home to pick up some belongings.

The suspect, Larry Willis, is now in custody.

    Sounds like you know alot about Larry and Rube. Tell us more about RECC and the fact that he is a BLACK man. And yes I know both sides of Larry and that one does not exist. And my prayers are with both!!!!

    You hold a company responsible for someone's actions?? You think a place of business caused this man to try and take someone's life. Not just someone - his wife! If you were that great of friends you would've known the other side of this man, and the reasons for early retirement and the reasons he didn't succeed were brought on by himself NOT RECC. Let's try using greed as an excuse or something more believable. He should take responsibility for what has happened and I pray everyday that justice will be served and he will pay. All of our prayers go out to Rube and her full recovery!!

    I've have been friends Larry all of my adult life. This is a big shock to me and others that new Larry. Since this has happened I have been doing a little investigating myself. After he finished school he went to work for RECC and dedicated his life to that job to make something of his self. Which he did so until they made some bogus job called Bluegrass Energy Economic Development Manager that was done away with after a year. So therefore he had no job. The job he had worked for all those years had been given to someone that was not even from Harrison Co. So he was forced in to early retirement or go back on the line. He had worked his way up to the position he deserved and was forced out. This had to be a big strain on both Larry and Rube. So I believe RECC should hold responsibility for what has happened to this well respected couple. Did RECC do this because he was a BLACK man? You people in Harrison Co. should not let something like this happen, after all you have say it is a COOP

    No matter what happened between this couple...or anyone else's personal life IT IS NOT OUR DECISION to try and end another person's life. Keep in mind that is one of the 10 commandments. My prayers are with your family & you Rube.

    OK Bobby, PUSH THIS MAN TO THINK THIS WAS HIS ONLY OPTION-have you ever heard of anger and just plain old mean SOB's? Why do you say "his house"-they had been married, and she was probably scared to death of him and needed help getting her stuff out of there. You sound like a real piece of work yourself.

    I agree, assault is not the right charge for this man...it should be attempted murder! Someone made a mistake! However, he will more than likely get out of it anyway. In KY, you can committ murder and only get 5 years for it. I'm looking to see more and more people killed because there is NO JUSTICE IN KENTUCKY! Our motto should be, "Kill anyone you want, the law is too stupid to do anything about it". Perhaps that's why so many foreigners are coming to KY! We need to change governors, lawmakers, and judges in Kentucky to ones who will PROTECT us, not think we are dumb hillbillies who do not need justice! We also need to take away the licenses to practice law of all the lawyers who get these people off so easy! Or change the laws to take it out of the hands of lawyers and judges. For example, murder should be death to the one who committed it without exception! No plea agreements allowed! I hope this guy gets what he deserves, but I won't count on it here in Kentucky!

    Nobody ever knows what goes on in someones personal life. Why does people always point fingers and talk bad about others? I am not saying that what he did was ok, because it is far from being ok. He as well as her need prayer to get through this situation. I didnt know this couple personaly, but there are always 2 sides to every situation. We are not put on this earth to judge each other. I feel sorry for both sides of the families. May God be with each one of you. I will continue to pray for everyone of you. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
