LEX to release 'significant portion' of Nunn Investigation

Jul 20, 2011

The Urban County Government reversed course on Wednesday and said it will release a "significant portion" of the police investigation in the murder case against former state Rep. Steve Nunn. In a response last week to the Herald-Leader's open-records request for the records, Lexington police said the investigative file would not be released until after Nunn had completed his sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. The sentence was handed down after he pleaded guilty in the shooting death of Amanda Ross.
