An Elizabethtown couple were killed in a wreck Sunday at the intersection of Lincoln Parkway and Roundtop Road.

Earl Richardson, 46, of Hodgenville is charged with murder in their deaths, according to Kentucky State Police.

Richardson was traveling south on Lincoln Parkway when he collided with the passenger side of the Dennis' 2004 Nissan Sentra, according to a news release from Post 4.
