LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A former lawmaker has been ordered to answer questions about the shooting death of a woman that landed him in prison for life.
Fayette County Circuit Judge James Ishmael on Tuesday ruled that 60-year-old Steve Nunn cannot avoid questions about the day 29-year-old Amanda Ross died outside her Lexington home.
Nunn has been found liable in civil court for the death of Amanda Ross. Nunn pleaded guilty to shooting and killing Ross four years ago. Nunn is serving life in prison.
He faces a civil trial in August in which the Ross family is seeking damages from him. The owner of the townhouses where Ross lived, Opera House Square, is also a defendant in the case.
Nunn refused to answer questions on July 11 during a deposition.
