Deal Struck in Suit Over Death of Nunn's Ex-Fiance

The mother of the woman former Barren County lawmaker Steve Nunn was convicted of killing has settled a lawsuit against the gated community in Lexington where the fatal shooting happened in 2009.

One of the attorneys representing Amanda Ross, Perry Bentley, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that Diana Ross, mother of Amanda Ross, and the Opera House Square Townhouse Association reached an out-of-court settlement for undisclosed terms.

A trial scheduled to start Monday in Lexington is now canceled.

Bentley said a hearing will be held Monday to determine how much in damages Nunn is liable for.

The 60-year-old former state representative is the son of the late Louie B. Nunn, former Kentucky governor.

Nunn is serving life without parole in a Muhlenberg County prison after pleading guilty in 2011 to murder.
