London Police say Sean Messer stabbed 25-year-old Pam Bobbitt to death Tuesday morning outside their apartment.

Police say it all happened in front of her two young children.

Sean Messer appeared before a Laurel District Judge for just a few moments Wednesday morning saying very little in answering to the charges that he murdered his girlfriend.

The violence happened in front of her children. More about the crime is expected to come out during a preliminary hearing, set for 11am on October 30th.

The judge said that the $250,000 in bond will remain.

We are told that funeral arrangements for Bobbitt are being worked out through a Barbourville Funeral Home.
