Whitley woman indicted, charged with murdering family

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - A woman accused of killing her family is indicted for their murders.

A Whitley County grand jury handed down an indictment against Courtney Taylor.

Taylor faces three counts of murder for the deaths of her husband and two daughters and wanton endangerment for raising a gun to police officers.

Kentucky State Police say Taylor shot and killed her husband Larry, and her two teen daughters, Jolie and Jessie on Friday, January 13th.

Police say she also raised a gun at two Whitley County Sheriff's deputies when they arrived on scene and entered the home.

Taylor was not present in the courtroom on Monday. Taylor has been moved to the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women for holding because they are suited there to treat her injuries.

A judge will hold an arraignment for Taylor on April 17th.
