LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's lone Democratic congressman says he believes President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses. But he says the House should only proceed with impeachment if the effort draws bipartisan support. At a debate Wednesday, U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth said that without support from Democrats and some Republicans, it would be a waste of Congress' time to proceed.
NEW YORK (AP) - Lawyers at a trial exploring corruption in big-time college basketball have clashed over the question of whether major programs were harmed by secret cash payments to top recruits. A prosecutor told a jury in closing arguments Wednesday that three defendants were shady fixers who put universities at risk for NCAA sanctions. A defense attorney calls the government theory that the schools were harmed 'flawed.'
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky state officials have settled a lawsuit involving child support payments in Floyd County. Earlier this year, Floyd County Attorney Keith Bartley sued Republican Gov. Matt Bevin's administration for ending a contract to collect child support. State officials said they ended the contract because Bartley threatened to burn down Bevin's home and "choke to death" a state employee. Bartley's attorney denied the allegations. The county attorney's office in Madison County now runs the program.
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - The estranged husband of a Fort Campbell soldier has been accused of killing her in an off-duty shooting at a sprawling Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee borderline. The FBI said Wednesday in a statement Victor Silvers was arrested on a federal complaint and will have a court hearing Thursday in Paducah. According to the complaint, Silvers is accused of murder, domestic violence and other counts in Sunday's fatal shooting of Brittney Niecol Silvers of Jacksonville, Florida.
