When officers got to the scene, they found someone lying in the street with several gunshot wounds. Paramedic crews transported the victim to the hospital where he later died.

Wrongful Death Attorneys Want Evaluation for Man Accused of Killing Girlfriend

Attorneys for the Lexington man who police say beat his girlfriend to death and then dismembered her body say they want their client to be mentally assessed.

No family was present today during Patrick Jones’s court hearing.  It’s been nearly six months since the gruesome murder of his girlfriend and mother of his child, Haley Bourgeois.

It was last July when police say Jones allegedly beat Haley Bourgeois to death, before cutting up her body up and hiding it in two dumpsters near some apartments.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Days after the murder, Jones pleaded not guilty to murder, abuse of a corpse, and tampering with physical evidence.

Today Jones’s attorneys told the court they are still waiting to get some medical records on their client – and once they are satisfied, they hope to have his mental state evaluated by KCPC.

A friend of Jones at the time of the murder told LEX 18 that he was suffering from mental illness, but they never thought he was capable of a crime like this.

“He had a very bad temper. Anything could set him off. Like, if anyone said anything to him he would start yelling at him. I would tell him ‘dude you need to chill,'” said the friend who wanted to remain anonymous.

The case has been continue to February 10.

Private Detective: Two Indicted on Child Abuse Charges

Two people have been indicted by the grand jury on charges of criminal abuse of a child.

Detectives say a juvenile had injuries that were not consistent with an accident. KSP says the charges were a result of a complaint from the Bourbon County Health and Family Services.

Taylor Myers, 24, and Jessica Morris, 24, are charged with Criminal Abuse 1st degree of a Child 12 years or younger. KSP says Morris is the child’s mother and Myers was living at the home at the time of the investigation. Family members say that Myers is Morris’ ex-boyfriend.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

The child’s grandmother, Rita Leet, said that her granddaughter was severely injured back in February 2016. Leet said that the baby was eight-months-old at the time.

“Her collar bone was broken, her arm was broken, her legs were broke,” said Leet.

Leet said baby Kenley had eight broken bones.  Kenley is the daughter of Jessica Morris and Rita Leet’s deceased son, Cody.

Morris was charged with criminal abuse in December.

Jessica Morris pleaded not guilty to the charge. Her attorney said that she has maintained her innocence from the beginning and has no knowledge of what happened.

The case remains under investigation.
