Vigil Scheduled Next Week for Hazard Shooting Victims

By Associated Press | 

A candlelight vigil will be held next week for the three victims of a shooting in the parking lot of Hazard Community and Technical College.

A news release says the vigil is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. EST Tuesday at the school in Hazard. The public is invited.

Police say a gunman enraged by a domestic dispute shot and killed his former girlfriend, her uncle and her cousin last Tuesday in the parking lot of the small southeastern Kentucky college.

Police have charged 21-year-old Dalton Stidham with three counts of murder and said he had purchased the gun earlier that day. Killed were 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett; 53-year-old Jackie Cornett; and 12-year-old Taylor Jade Cornett.

Stidham is scheduled Tuesday for an initial appearance in Perry District Court.
