  • EARLIER: Trial in penis amputation case postponed

    A jury trial involving the case of a Shelby County man who says his penis was amputated without his consent has been postponed.

    Circuit Judge Charles Hickman said that the trial would be rescheduled because of concern that an article in Friday’s Sentinel-News would influence the jury pool.

    “The article’s detailed events of the case would have made it difficult to seat a jury,” he said.

  • Power restored after huge outage

    Power is restored this morning to some homes in Shelby County that were part of a huge outage caused by a substation explosion in Frankfort.

    Residents in eastern and southern parts of Shelby were affected along with thousands in Franklin, Scott, Anderson and Woodford Counties on a night when temperatures dipped into single digits and wind-chill factors were at zero or below.

    Some in the Waddy area reported on The Sentinel-News Facebook page that power had been restored early Sunday morning.

  • Slick roads surprise residents

    Shelby Countians -- and road workers around the state -- awoke this morning to not a lot of snow but a bit more than expected, which left roads slick.

    A little more than an inch of snow fell overnight, and road scraping and salting crews were a bit later than usual making their rounds. Most roads had been brined, so added salt melted the snow quickly, despite the frigid temperatures in the mid-teens.

    Police around Kentucky reported numerous accidents, one on I-75 that involved two trailer trucks and left the highway looking like a parking lot.
