UPDATE: Oct. 26, 5:25 p.m.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Office public affairs deputy Gilbert Acciardo says that when deputies received a call at 3:36 a.m. on Sunday morning, they were not aware of what was taking place off of KY-30 just north of London.

“They weren’t even called to a shooting on Saturday night, early Sunday morning," Acciardo said. "And whenever our deputies got on scene they found a male subject there, deceased.”

Police say Baldwin fled to nearby Jackson County, where she was apprehended by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office until Laurel County deputies arrived, where they discovered a critical piece of evidence in the vehicle Baldwin was driving.

“We actually recovered the weapon that was used in the shooting and took it into property and returned her to the Laurel County Sheriff’s office," Acciardo said.

Baldwin is currently being charged with murder and is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Nov. 4 at 9 a.m. Officials with the Sheriff’s Office also say that while she left the scene, Baldwin has remained cooperative.

“She was very honest with us. We had enough to actually charge her with the murder," Acciardo said. “We haven’t really determined the circumstances of what led up to the shooting, but we had enough for the arrest.”

Police say the incident is still under investigation.

EAST BERNSTADT, Ky. (WYMT) - A shooting in the East Bernstadt community left one man dead and a woman behind bars Sunday morning.

Deputies with the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint on Kentucky Highway 30 around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

When they arrived, they found 38-year-old Don Roy Collett was shot at least once.

The Laurel County Coroner’s Office pronounced Collet dead at the scene.

An investigation led deputies to believe that the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute.

Deputies say the suspect, 24-year-old Logan Baldwin, ran to Jackson County before being taken into custody by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and taken back to Laurel County.

After being interviewed by detectives, Baldwin was charged with murder and sent to the Laurel County Correctional Center.
