A former Kentucky legislator cut his wrists today only hours after a gunshot wound killed his ex-fiancée, police tell the Lexington Herald-Leader. Steve Nunn, who had a history of domestic violence with ex Amanda Ross, was arrested in a church cemetery, where he had put mementos on family graves before trying to kill himself. He was charged with violating a protective order by carrying a handgun.
Nunn, who is recovering in a hospital, is "a guy we want to talk to" about Ross' shooting, a police source said. Nunn and Ross started dating in 2007, broke up a year later, and kept seeing each other; a fight at her apartment landed them both in court in February. Nunn served as a Republican state representative and ran unsuccessfully for the GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2003.
