FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear says Kentucky will receive a settlement of more than $6 million from a case involving online gambling.

The case dates back to 2008 when the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet filed suit to seize 141 domain names belonging to Internet gambling companies. Kentucky later joined two federal lawsuits against some of those companies, leading to the settlement Beshear announced Wednesday.

Beshear said the money will go into the state's General Fund.
