Police: Defense attorney fatally shot outside office in southern Kentucky; suspect arrested
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 27, 2014 1:40 PM EDT
Officials say a defense attorney well known in his small, southern Kentucky town has been shot and killed outside of his law office by a man who wanted his help but was turned down.
A police citation says Inabnitt told officers that he shot Stanziano because the attorney declined to help him with a problem Thursday night and laughed at him.
Somerset Police Department spokesman Shannon Smith declined to describe the problem but said Stanziano would not have been able to help.
