Competency Hearing Set for Nunn
Lexington, KY – The mental competency of a former Kentucky lawmaker accused of killing his ex-fiancee will be reviewed at a hearing set for this afternoon in Lexington. Former state Representative Steve Nunn was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation to determine whether he is competent to assist in his defense.
Police accuse Nunn of shooting 29-year-old Amanda Ross multiple times last September 11 outside her Lexington home. He has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge. Fayette County Circuit Judge Pamela Goodwine says Nunn will join the competency hearing by phone. Nunn's attorney has raised concerns about the ex-lawmaker's ability to assist in his own defense. Nunn is the son of former Kentucky Governor Louie Nunn.
