    Death Penalty Trial Postponed for Courtney L. Taylor in 2017 KY Triple Murder of her Husband and Teen Daughters

    Prosecutors to seek death penalty against woman charged with killing family

    WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Commonwealth Attorney's Office says prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Courtney Taylor.

    Kentucky State Police say Taylor shot and killed her husband Larry, and her two teen daughters, Jolie and Jessie on Friday, January 13th. Police say she also raised a gun at two Whitley County Sheriff's deputies when they entered her home.

    Taylor pleaded not guilty during her circuit court arraignment to three counts of murder and two counts of wanton endangerment.

    Back in February, a detective testified that Taylor told them she shot her husband after he depleted a cash settlement of more than $264,000 she had deposited in June.

    Courtney Taylor getting new lawyer, hearing date

    By Mark White
    The News Journal

    A Williamsburg woman, who allegedly killed her husband and her two teenager daughters while they slept in January, is getting a new attorney.

    Courtney Taylor, 41, is charged with three counts of capital murder in the Jan. 13 shooting deaths of Larry Taylor, 56, Jesse Taylor, 18, and Jolee Taylor, 13.

    Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in her case.

    Roger Gibbs, who headed the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy’s regional office in London, had been serving as an attorney for Taylor since shortly after her arrest.

    However, Gibbs filed a motion to be relieved as counsel of record in the case on Sept. 18 noting that he planned to retire from the Department of Public Advocacy on Oct. 1.

    Special Judge Jeffrey Burdette signed an order on Sept. 28 allowing Gibbs to withdraw from the case.

    Ron Findell, a long-time public defender assigned to Whitley County, will continue representing Taylor.

    Burdette noted in his order Thursday that Teresa Whitaker would be entering her appearance and joining Findell as Taylor’s legal counsel.

    Taylor, who has been housed at the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women at Pee Wee Valley, had been scheduled for a pre-trial conference this past Friday in the case, but Burdette postponed that hearing until Nov. 1 at 9 a.m.

    He ordered that Taylor be transported to the Whitley County Detention Center this past Friday in order to meet with her new attorney for one hour in a secure area of the facility.

    Burdette’s order calls for the commonwealth attorney’s office to provide defense attorneys with estimated time frames relevant to all matters of discovery, including the not limited to coroner’s reports and lab results prior to the Nov. 1 hearing.

    Taylor is scheduled to stand trial on April 16, 2018. There are no indications whether her trial may be delayed due to the change of defense counsel.

    Two weeks have been set aside for the trial.

    Courtney Taylor is also charged in a separate indictment with two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for pointing a 9mm handgun at Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Jonas Saunders and Sgt. James Fox, who responded to her residence to investigate the shooting.

    Saunders shot her twice with his service weapon when she allegedly pointed a gun at him. Courtney Taylor was in the hospital for about two weeks before being released and taken to the Whitley County Detention Center.

    She was later transferred to the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women at Pee Wee Valley, which is a women’s prison with a hospital unit.

    According to the Whitley County Detention Center’s website, Taylor was transferred there Thursday morning and as of Tuesday morning was still lodged there.

    She is being held in lieu of a $1 million bond. So far defense attorneys haven’t filed any motions for a bond reduction in the case.

    Taylor trial scheduled for Nov. 5

    By Timothy Wyatt
    The Times-Tribune

    WHITLEY COUNTY – With everything now in order, the jury trial for a Williamsburg woman accused of killing her husband and two children in January 2017 has been once again set.

    Courtney Taylor, 42, faces three counts of murder for allegedly shooting her husband and two children in their beds. The bodies were discovered after deputies with the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department responded to the home near the Emlyn community to investigate a 911 call made by a concerned family member.

    When deputies arrived at the scene, there was no response from inside the home, which led to them forcing their way through a back door of the house. Upon entry, Taylor allegedly aimed a firearm in the direction of the deputies before being shot twice.

    She was taken from the scene to Baptist Health Corbin and then later transported to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington for treatment. After being released, she was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

    A jury trial was previously scheduled to begin April 16, though Judge Jeff Burdette continued that trial date last month at the request of Taylor’s attorneys, Teresa Whitaker and Ron Findell, due to several extenuating circumstances.

    A motion to continue the trial was initially entered in December 2017 by Whitaker, who had just recently taken on the case as co-counsel following the retirement of Taylor’s former attorney, Roger Gibbs, during the fall of last year. At that time, Whitaker stated that she had multiple trials scheduled in other cases around the same time as the previous trial date, arguing that she may not be able to devote the time necessary to such a case with such a short window to prepare.

    To compound the issue for defense attorneys, the mitigation specialist that had been working with Whitaker and Findell was taken off the case in early December 2017, creating a notable deficit in their ability to help build a case since a mitigation specialist plays such a vital, necessary role in a defense attorney’s arsenal. In a capital case such as this one, that person helps with the preparation and presentation of certain evidence

    In addition, a number of evidentiary items, such as lab reports, were still in possession of the Kentucky State Police Crime Lab.

    Taylor returned to Whitley County Circuit Court Monday morning, where Burdette was informed that all the potential issues hindering the case from proceeding to trial have since been resolved. In light of that information, Burdette began discussing new trial dates, first offering October, then September. But, conflicts with Whitaker and Findell’s schedules continued to slow progress.

    Burdette decided to first address the jury situation and proceed from there.

    “I believe jury selection is going to take longer than anything,” said Burdette.

    Approximately 400 to 500 jurors are expected to be summoned for possible jury selection, according to Burdette, which will begin Oct. 30 and could last through Nov. 1. Once a jury has been approved, the trial will begin Nov. 5 with a target completion date of Nov. 14. However, Burdette said that more time would be given if necessary.

    Another pretrial conference has also been scheduled for June 7 at 2 p.m.

    Taylor remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center without bond.

    Courtney Taylor Ruled Competent To Stand Trial


    WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (Corbin News Journal) – The woman who, according to police, killed her husband and two children two years ago has been ruled competent to stand trial.

    A special judge made the ruling on Thursday that Courtney Taylor, 43, is competent to stand trial, according to the Corbin News Journal.

    Taylor is accused of shooting her husband Larry, 56, and her two daughters, Jolee, 13, and Jesse, 18. Police then shot Taylor two times after they say she pointed a gun at them when they came to investigate.

    Prosecutors say that they are seeking the death penalty.
