CAMPTON, Ky. (WKYT/WXIX) - More details are emerging about a deadly Wolfe County shooting.

Two weeks ago, investigators say 31-year-old Jarron Slayback of Cincinnati was killed while on a weekend getaway.

According to police a family friend, Troy Dunkelberger shot Slayback following an argument.

According to FOX19 Now News in Cincinnati, Slayback’s sister, Megan, was there when it happened, and says she’s still trying to cope with what she saw.

“The next thing I know he just lifted the gun and shot him and didn’t stop,” she says. “And then, I’m trying to get back out to my brother, and at that point, I didn’t know where the shooter was.”

Dunkelberger is charged with first-degree murder in the case.
