Man accused of murdering wife appears in court

Somerset —  

A man who allegedly killed his wife during a domestic dispute before turning his gun to responding officers in a short stand-off in Nancy appeared in court this week.
Timmy K. Hislope, 52, who was shot and injured during an exchange on August 9 with police at his home in Nancy, appeared in Pulaski Circuit Court Thursday for a pre-trial hearing, during which several motions were heard. 
Hislope has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges, which were handed down by a Pulaski County grand jury in September in connection with the death of his wife, Mary A. Hislope, 44. 
Hislope allegedly shot and killed Mary Hislope inside their home at 38 Okalona Road in Nancy with police officers outside the residence. A detailed report by Kentucky State Police Detective Douglas Boyd stated that KSP Troopers Chris Ison and William Cowan and Pulaski County Sheriff’s Deputy Steve Molen responded to a report of a disturbance at the Hislopes’ home and underwent a short stand-off with Hislope after he allegedly shot and killed his wife. 
Timmy Hislope allegedly raised a shotgun and pointed it in the officers’ direction. Both Ison and Cowan fired their guns at Timmy Hislope but didn’t strike him. Timmy Hislope then allegedly ran back into the residence and exited again and pointed the weapon at Molen, who retreated in an attempt to create distance between himself and Timmy Hislope, according to Boyd’s account. 
Timmy Hislope allegedly chased Molen until another officer shot him. Timmy Hislope was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment.
Mary Hislope was found dead inside the Hislopes’ home after the stand-off ended. 
A Pulaski County grand jury on Sept. 5 indicted Timmy Hislope on one count of murder, one count of kidnapping and three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.
