A Barren County man wanted for the murder of his wife has been arrested in another state. Glasgow Police say John Amis was taken into custody Friday by law enforcement in Clermont County, Ohio. 

Amis is charged in the death of 37-year-old Lorine LaBombard. According to police, Amis called 911 on June 16 stating that he was en route to TJ Samson Hospital with his wife who was unresponsive due to a possible drug overdose. 

LaBombard was declared dead by hospital staff. The coroner of Barren County later contacted police after discovering multiple bruises and injuries to her body that suggested possible foul play. An autopsy ruled out an overdose as the cause of death, but rather blunt force trauma.

Once Amis is returned to Barren County, his bond will be set $1 million.
