Details emerging in alleged murder plot


Somerset —

According to KSP Detective Billy Correll,  that while the investigations into both Taylor’s assault and Stephens’ death are still open, “the public should not have any grounds for concern” relating to further occurrences.
The Record also reported that neither Correll nor Skinner could name the motive behind the alleged foiled murder plot, and that while Stephens apparently knew the Taylors, there was no known connection between Stephens and the men who accompanied Prater. Correll said that KSP has leads on the identities of the other two suspects, believed to be two black males in their 20s between 5-foot-9 and 6-feet tall.
Prater told Lexington TV station WKYT over the weekend that he was involved to “help” Taylor and “protect” her. He was quoted as saying, “I thought if I was in the hot seat, then no one else would have been considered to hurt her.” 
Prater is lodged in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
