Georgetown man pleads not guilty in ex-girlfriend's shooting

GEORGETOWN — A man accused of shooting two people at his ex-girlfriend's home early Wednesday pleaded not guilty Thursday to nine felony charges.

Police say Jason Wilson, 26, of Georgetown, became upset when he found his ex-girlfriend, Stephanie Bu chanan, 25, with another man at a gathering of friends at her home on King George Drive in Georgetown.

Four children, including three children Wilson has with Buchanan, and four adults were in the house when Wilson started shooting after an altercation with Buchanan's male friend, police said.

Buchanan was shot in the hip, and Darryl Brown, 18, who jumped in to help when Wilson started fighting with Buchanan's friend, was shot in the face.

Buchanan remained in fair condition at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital on Thursday. Brown had been discharged.

Wilson has been charged with first-degree burglary, six counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and two counts of attempted murder.

Buchanan and Wilson have had domestic issues in the past.

A judge granted an emergency protective order in August 2006 after Buchanan said Wilson pointed a gun at her in front of one of her children.

The order expired in August 2007.

Wilson, who is being held at the Scott County jail on a $200,000 cash bond, is scheduled to return to court at 1:30 p.m. April 7.
