Human remains found Monday in Bath County have been identified as that of a woman who has been missing since July.
The remains, which were found at 2:24 p.m. Monday under a brush pile at a farm at 3391 U.S. 60 East, belong to Crystal Warner, Kentucky State Police trooper Bill Gregory said in a news release. Her identity was confirmed using dental records, Gregory said.
Warner, 35, and her boyfriend, Robert Jones, 38, were last seen July 3 on Texas Road in Springfield. Jones’ body was found by people collecting aluminum cans on Goshen Road at U.S. 60 near Winchester. His body was identified in early August using dental records. Jones had three sons.
Craig Pennington, 52, was charged July 8 with two counts of murder. Gregory said Pennington rented a cabin on Texas Mackville Road from Jones.
Never miss a local story.
Pennington is being held in the Marion County jail awaiting trial, Gregory said.
