A Whitley County woman charged in the slayings of her husband and two daughters has been released from University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital and has been taken to jail, police said.
Courtney L. Taylor, 41, of Williamsburg has been charged with three counts of domestic murder and two counts of attempted murder of a police officer, according to state police.
Whitley County sheriff’s deputies were called to a reported shooting at a house on U.S. 25 in Williamsburg on the night of Jan. 13, according to state police. They found Taylor, who brandished a gun and pointed it at the deputies, police said. One of the deputies then shot Taylor.
The three were shot in the head, and there was no struggle, Whitley County sheriff Colan Harrell told WKYT previously. The victims were found in their beds, according to some reports.
Taylor was being held at the Whitley County jail.
