Officer: Man says hidden message told him to kill

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) — A detective has testified that a man accused of gunning down a prominent Kentucky defense attorney told police he had deciphered a newspaper message instructing him to carry out the killing. Somerset Police Detective Chris Gates said at a hearing Wednesday that the defendant, Clinton Inabnitt, believed that if he killed Mark Stanziano, the ringing in his ears would stop. Gates was among officers who interviewed Inabnitt shortly after Stanziano was shot repeatedly as he arrived at his law office in downtown Somerset last month. Gates says Inabnitt told police he didn't want to carry out the shooting and understood it was wrong but it was something he had to do. A judge sent the case to a grand jury after hearing testimony from Gates and a sheriff's detective who witnessed the shooting.
