Nunn Apologizes To Family Of Woman He Killed

May 31, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- A former Kentucky lawmaker serving life in prison apologized publicly for the first time Friday to the family of his former fiancee, whom he pleaded guilty to shooting and killing in Lexington four years ago.

During a hearing in Fayette Circuit Court, 60-year-old Stephen R. Nunn didn't directly say he shot 29-year-old Amanda Ross on Sept. 11, 2009, outside her townhouse. But Nunn, making his first public comments since pleading guilty in 2011, noted that Ross's mother, Diana Ross of Lexington, wasn't in the courtroom.
