HOUSE FIRE-DEATH
Kentucky State Police charge man in Lee County slaying

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 24, 2014 7:39 AM EDT
BEATTYVILLE, Ky.


Kentucky State Police say an eastern Kentucky man has been charged with killing a woman found in a burned out residence.

A statement from police on Wednesday says 55-year-old Melvin G. Slone of Beattyville is charged with murder in the death of 79-year-old Martha Belle Hollar.

Firefighters found Hollar's body after extinguishing a blaze at her residence earlier this month. An autopsy found that Hollar had been fatally shot before the fire began.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Slone has an attorney.
