A Kentucky Amber Alert has been issued for four young boys who are missing after a man killed his girlfriend in Bardstown in Nelson County, local officials say. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 immediately.
The incident happened at around 5 p.m. on Friday when 32-year-old Richard Samual Gray is alleged to have killed his girlfriend at her home on Robin Drive in Bardstown. He then fled the scene, taking the four children with him.
