Kentucky State Police were called to the Bennett's home on Clinton Court around 6 p.m. on a reported shooting. Mark Bennett was pronounced dead at the scene.

Court documents reveal a violent past involving Mark Bennett, including involvement with the separate domestic violence orders.

In August 2009, Bennett filed a DVO against his ex-wife and mother of his children, Karen Florence. In the documents, he claimed she forcefully entered his truck and held him at gunpoint before that day. That particular DVO expired two days later.

Two years after that, his ex-wife Karen Florence filed a DVO against him, claiming he had physically hurt her and their daughters.

The court kept Kandy Bennett's bond at $250,000 cash. Court representatives said she will be appointed a public defender because she has no income or assets. On April 28, she’ll be transported from Shelby County jail to appear in court for a preliminary hearing.
