Accused murderer Steve Nunn of Glasgow, Kentucky, has been moved from the Fayette County Jail for psychiatric evaluation.
Former Kentucky lawmaker Steve Nunn is now housed in the Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center in LaGrange. The Courier-Journal says Nunn, who’s accused of killing former fiancée Amanda Ross, was moved to the facility on Tuesday.
Nunn’s attorney Astrida Lemkins sought the psychiatric evaluation, which was not opposed by the Fayette County Attorney’s office. Fifty-six year old Nunn is accused of gunning down Ross on September 11th outside the woman’s Lexington townhouse. Nunn has pleaded Not Guilty.
The murder case is under consideration by a Fayette County grand jury, which to date has issued no indictment.
A hearing on a motion by Fayette County Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Larson to have Nunn returned to Fayette County until any indictment is returned is scheduled for Friday morning.
