One year later: The slaying of Officer Jason Ellis

A year ago, Bardstown Police Officer Jason Ellis was ambushed as he headed home. He was hit with multiple shotgun blasts after he got out of a department pool car to pick up tree limbs on an exit ramp from Martha Layne Collins Blue Grass Parkway. The death of Ellis, 33, a married father of two sons, led to an outpouring of grief in the Nelson County seat.
