LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - Volunteers will be breaking ground on a home later this year in honor of Amanda Ross, a state worker who was fatally shot last year outside her Lexington home.
Friends and family collected $42,000 in donations after a few months of fundraising to build the Habitat for Humanity home.
Ross' ex-fiance, former state legislator Steve Nunn, is charged in the September slaying. Ross had an emergency protective order against Nunn.
Lexington Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Rachel Childress says a friend of Ross' had the idea for the Habitat home and received support from Ross' family.
