Man accused of killing a bartender at Louisville nightclub on Derby Eve expected in court Monday
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A Louisville man accused of killing a mother of two at Vibes Restaurant and Ultra Lounge is expected in court Monday morning.
Ronnie O’Bannon has been out of jail and on home incarceration for more than a month now, and is expected back in court on Monday.
O’Bannon is accused of shooting and killing Kasmira Nash, 37, at the Vibes Restaurant & Ultra Lounge off River Road on May 1st. That night, Nash was working at the club as a bartender.
Also known as “Lucci,” O’Bannon was a DJ for Louisville rapper Jack Harlow, who was also in the club at the time of the shooting.
Video of what happened that night showed a confrontation within the club moments before the shooting happened.
His lawyers argued in court in May that the shooting was done in self-defense. O’Bannon is charged with murder and tampering with evidence.
He’s also a person of interest in another deadly shooting case at X-Clusive nightclub in Shively back in 2020, but police there say more witnesses need to come forward.
