Graves County Home Invasion Leads to Murder Charges


By WSIL Manager

GRAVES COUNTY, KY.-- The victim involved in a home invasion last week has died.

The incident happened at a home south of Mayfield.

Sheriffs department officials arrested James Allen Kirby, 24, and Richard Phipps, 40, both from Hopkinsville.

Officials say Richard Jett was shot when he answered his door. The intruders then went to a bedroom and shot his wife at least twice.

Graves County Sheriff, Dewayne Redmon, says Jett died from his injuries Sunday. However, his wife is improving.

The two men accused are now charged with murder, robbery, and possession of a weapon by a felon.
