TAYLORSVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Kentucky State Police have made two arrests in a Spencer County death investigation that began after the remains of a Taylorsville mother were found back in May.

An autopsy was conducted, and the remains were identified as 35-year-old Christina Walker. The Shelby County coroner ruled Walker’s death as a homicide.
