    An Elizabethtown woman was arrested Saturday in connection to the killing, but police still  are looking for two individuals who they say stole Allen’s car.

  • Budget, redistricting top list for upcoming session

    The Kentucky General Assembly looks to have an old-fashioned slugfest on its hands this year as the redistricting of legislative districts and a lean budget stand as the headliners of the 60-day legislative session.
