Shane Ragland summoned to court over alleged domestic violence incident

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man who pleaded guilty to shooting and killing a UK football player -- and served his time for that murder -- is facing legal problems once again after an alleged domestic violence incident.

Shane Ragland was convicted of the murder of Trent DiGiuro and sentenced to 30 years in prison, but his conviction was overturned in 2002 after it was discovered that an FBI investigator was not truthful during a pretrial conference. Later, Ragland pleaded guilty to the murder and was sentenced to the time he served, plus three days.

On Tuesday, WDRB News learned that Ragland is again facing legal issues. According to court documents, a summons was issued on Dec. 23, requiring Ragland to appear in court in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident involving a woman and four children.

Ragland's court date is Jan. 6. It's not clear if he is facing any charges.
