Kentucky Man Indicted on Triple Murder on College Campus
A Perry County man who police say shot and killed three people in a domestic dispute at a Kentucky college has been indicted on three murder charges.
WYMT-TV in Hazard reported that the indictment was handed down against Dalton Stidham, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Police said Stidham killed his former girlfriend and two of her family members in the parking lot of Hazard Community and Technical College on Jan. 15.
Police have said that Stidham had a child with 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett and had met in the parking lot to exchange custody of the 2-year-old boy. Cornett and her uncle, 53-year-old Jackie Cornett, were found dead on the scene and her 12-year-old cousin, Taylor Jade Cornett, died after being shot multiple times.
