Daughter, husband charged in Kentucky woman's slaying

Posted

LONDON, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky woman's daughter and son-in-law have been charged in her death.


Laurel County Sheriff John Root said in a statement Tuesday that Christie Elizabeth McFadden is charged with complicity to commit murder and her husband, Joseph Craig McFadden, is charged with murder in the slaying of 58-year-old Sherry Rose.


News outlets cited court documents saying Rose was reported missing on Monday and detectives investigating the case found a body early Tuesday that they think is Rose.


The sheriff's statement says detectives believe Rose was stabbed during a June 15 altercation involving her daughter and son-in-law. Authorities say the couple then purchased mops, bleach and ammonia to clean up before dumping the body in a rural location.


Christie McFadden told WLEX-TV that her mother attacked her and stabbed herself when Joseph McFadden tried to break up the fight.
