Man Shoots and Kills Son-In-Law

Police say a homeowner shot and killed a man, suspected of trying to break into his home.

It happened in a trailer on Sinking Creek Road late Sunday night, just off west Highway 80.

Kentucky State Police tell 27 NEWSFIRST 46-year-old Jesse Justice reportedly tried to enter the home, and that he was armed with a Machete.

When police arrived, they found Justice dead at the scene, shot and killed by the homeowner, Paul Whitworth, the suspects father-in-law.

Police say that an active Domestic Violence Disorder was in effect at the time against Justice, taken out by his wife, Edna Whitworth, and her parents.

No charges have been filed in the case.

The incident remains under investigation by the Laurel County Major Crimes Task Force.
