Prosecutors say a drug deal gone wrong was the motive for a shooting in Graves County last week that left two dead and one injured. At a preliminary hearing yesterday, Graves County Sheriff’s Detective Brad Smith testified that witnesses said Ashley Lambert of Dublin took money from Jacob Carder and Kenon Andrews to purchase methamphetamine for them. A week later, Lambert had neither the drugs nor the money, so Carder and Andrews confronted her. The incident left 25-year old Lambert, 22-year old Jonathon Cagle, and 18-year old Whitley Moore shot in the head. Only Moore survived.
A second victim of Tuesday’s shooting in Graves County has died. Police say 22 year old Jonathon Cagle if Mayfield passed away yesterday morning at Vanderbilt Medical Center. The Paducah sun reports a third victim, 19 year old Whitley More of Fancy Farm is expected to recover from her injuries. Two men have been arrested in connection with the shooting and are being held at the Graves County Jail. Both Kenon Andrews and Jacob Carter may have their current charges amended to murder at an initial hearing on April fourth.
