Parents charged with murdering twin in southern Kentucky

LONDON, Ky. (AP) — A couple have been charged in southern Kentucky with murder in the death of one of their 7-week-old twin daughters.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said in a news release Wednesday that 31-year-old Jessica Nicely was also charged with two counts of first-degree criminal abuse, and her 34-year-old husband, Gary Nicely, was charged with one count of first-degree criminal abuse.

The Nicelys are being held in the Laurel County jail.

Root announced last week that the girl was pronounced dead Thursday evening at University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital. Her twin suffered leg fractures.
