LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Three women killed found shot in a Lexington home Wednesday afternoon in the 1100 block of Caywood Drive. The man accused of killing his wife and two adult daughters, Steven Wilson, is now charged with three counts of murder.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn says he responded to a scene where a man reportedly killed his wife, 65-year-old Lisa Wilson, and two daughters Bryonny, 42, and Bronwyn Wilson, 38.

“Anytime you find three females in one house and they’ve all suffered injuries of gunshot wounds by a family member, I mean that’s, it’s pretty disturbing,” says Ginn.

Some neighbors describe the man who lived there as ‘strange’, someone who didn’t socialize much with the rest of the street.

“You know, we pretty much know everybody here, it’s a pretty friendly neighborhood but he was kind of, you know, kind of stand-off-ish but I mean he never did or said anything out of the way,” says Frances James, a neighbor. “It’s really shocking that he chose to do this, really.”

James says she’s no stranger to sirens in the area but seeing the scene so close to her own home was a shock.

“He was not a real friendly person, however, he was a neighbor and we spoke. But they’re pretty saddened by it too, you know, it’s a neighbor,” says James. “It didn’t need to happen.”

The coroner says he wasn’t able to determine at the scene whether the women sustained any other injuries besides multiple gunshot wounds. The coroner’s report says official cause of death is pending autopsy.

There was no comment on whether Steve Wilson was injured.
