LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The name of the victim of a 2022 Cambridge Drive homicide has been released.

The Fayette County Coroner identified the victim as 40-year-old Jimmy Medlock.

Medlock’s cause of death was listed as a laceration/stab wound to the thorax.

Police arrested and charged 35-year-old Jennifer Kashuba in connection to the homicide on Monday.

In February of 2022, Lexington police and fire departments were called to the Stonebridge Apartment Complex off of Cambridge Drive.

According to Kashuba’s arrest citation, someone who lived in that complex found human remains near a dumpster in front of the parking lot.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn told WKYT the body was found wrapped in plastic and partially decomposed. Ginn has now confirmed the victim died from a stab wound to the chest. Lexington police have been investigating this case as a homicide.

Their investigation led them to Kashuba as a suspect. Kashuba’s arrest citation says during an interview with police, Kashuba confessed to stabbing the victim once in the chest, causing his death.

Kashuba is facing murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence charges.
