Former State Rep. Nunn Moved To Hart County Jail

From Kentucky Public Radio's Tony McVeighLexington Police are waiting to question former Kentucky representative Steve Nunn about the murder of Nunn’s former fiancée, Amanda Ross.  The twenty-nine year old Ross was gunned down Friday morning outside her Lexington townhouse. Lexington Police Lt. Doug Pape won’t say if Nunn is considered a suspect in the case. “I’m not really prepared to make any comments in reference to a suspect in this case.  There’s no pre-determined conclusion.  We’re investigating it diligently.  I really couldn’t say where it’s going because it will go where the investigation takes us.  At this point, it is still ongoing and we don’t make many comments in reference to an ongoing investigation.”Nunn was arrested at his parents’ graves in Hart County, hours after Ross’ murder.  He’s charged with six counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly brandishing a 38-caliber handgun at police.  Before being jailed, Nunn was briefly hospitalized for self-inflicted wrist wounds.
