HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky man has been returned to the state to face charges of criminal attempt to commit murder of a police officer.

Kentucky State Police say 56-year-old Keith Dildine fired shots at police in Fulton on July 7. The Paducah Sun reported that Trooper Mark Franklin shot Dildine multiple times, ending a standoff.

Dildine was taken to Parkway Regional Hospital in Fulton, then flown to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn.

Dildine remains in the Fulton County Detention Center in Hickman. Jail records do no list an attorney.
