BOONEVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Booneville woman, charged in the murder of her parents, was released from custody Friday morning.
Back in May, Lynette McQuinn was charged with murder and tampering with evidence in the deaths of Ada and Robert McQuinn. The couple was found shot to death on May 6.
An Owsley Circuit Court Judge issued an order on Friday, saying that, per Kentucky criminal procedure 5.22, since an indictment was not presented to a grand jury within 60 days, McQuinn would be released from custody and her bond lifted.
The matter can be submitted to another grand jury.
