LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) –According to the Fayette County Coroner a husband shot his wife then took his own life inside their home on Tulane Drive.
The coroner says there was a home health nurse inside when it happened. She heard the gunshots from another room, then went outside and flagged down a garbage man who called 911.
The wife was taken to UK hospital. Officials tell us she is expected to live. The Fayette County Coroner says 74-year-old Millard Ray died on the scene.
