Five generations are mourning the death of a Southern Kentucky Judge.

And it's believed he could have died of fungal meningitis that's part of a national outbreak.

Eddie Lovelace was a 78-year-old Circuit Judge from Clinton County.

His family says he was in very good health until mid-September when he started slurring his speech and feeling dizzy.

His wife Joyce Lovelace says, "He was in the kitchen, and he said, 'My legs don't work right. There is something wrong with my legs."

Doctors say Lovelace had a stroke.

He died after five days in a Nashville Hospital.

Doctors say he'd been given steroids after being in a car crash that hurt his neck and back.

And doctors think those steroids from a New England company could be from a batch tainted with fungal meningitis.
