UPDATE 6/27/14 @ 2:30 p.m. SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - More details are coming out about the murder of a defense attorney who was gunned down outside his office.
Somerset Police say 57-year-old Mark Stanziano was shot at least four times about 8 a.m. Friday by a man who lives across the street.
They say 40-year-old Clinton D. Inabnitt was waiting for Stanziano and that witnesses described him wordlessly shooting the attorney.
Inabnitt is charged with murder.
A police citation says Inabnitt told officers that he shot Stanziano because the attorney declined to help him with a problem Thursday night and laughed at him.
Somerset Police Department spokesman Shannon Smith declined to describe the problem but said Stanziano would not have been able to help.
Somerset Police say Mark Stanziano, 57, was shot multiple times about 8 a.m.
Police have arrested Clinton D. Inabnitt, 40, of Somerset.
They say witnesses have told them that Inabnitt had contact with Stanziano on Thursday evening and that he had previously threatened the attorney.
A biography on Stanziano's law practice website says he had 30 years experience in criminal cases.
Somerset is in Pulaski County.
In 2002, a former Pulaski County sheriff was killed in a plot around the time of a political rally. Stanziano represented the man charged with the murder.
