Police investigating after two bodies found outside home

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Police are investigating what they believe to be a murder-suicide in Bath County.

The bodies of 53-year-old Richard N. Spillman and 43-year-old Valerie K. Stevens were discovered outside a home in the Salt Lick area of the county, according to WKYT-TV in Lexington.

Investigators say Spillman shot Stevens before turning the gun on himself. The two had a prior relationship where they had lived together, according to police.

Stevens was an employee of St. Claire Regional Medical Center, Home Health Services.

Police say she arrived at the home to care for a patient. Spillman came shortly afterward and the two apparently got into an argument.
