Details remain limited in double homicide

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Department is hoping to release more details this week in connection to a double homicide that occurred Dec. 7. 

Sheriff Barry Babb said at 2:29 p.m., the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic dispute at Coventry Court,  in the Highgrove subdivision located in the southern unincorporated part of Fayette County. 

Upon arrival, the deputies located the male 911 caller outside the residence.  Babb said inside the residence the deputies located two deceased females. The 911 caller is the only suspect at this time, and he was taken into custody. 

At this time the investigators are processing the scene and the investigation centers around the lone suspect. Babb said he believes this to be an isolated incident. As the investigation continues more information will be released. No names will be released currently pending notification of next of kin.
