Special prosecutor assigned to teen shooting death
BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) -- A special prosecutor was assigned to review the case of the shooting death of Samantha Ramsey.
Commonwealth's Attorney Linda Talley-Smith requested not to be assigned Ramsey's case. She cites a conflict of interest. Instead, Commonwealth Attorney Jim Crawford is being assigned to the case.
Ramsey was shot to death by Boone County Sheriff's deputy, Tyler Brockman, when she tried to leave a field party in May. She was driving away when the deputy reportedly told her to stop. He says he fired shots when she failed to stop.
Crawford will determine whether Brockman should face charges.
