LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Former state lawmaker Steve Nunn has apologized to the family of the woman he shot and killed four years ago.
Nunn is serving a life sentence in prison for the 2009 death of his former fiancee, Amanda Ross.
Nunn made the apology during a court hearing Friday in Lexington over how much access he should have to his lawyer's file in the criminal case.
Nunn addressed his comments to Ross' mother, Diana Ross, who was not in the courtroom. He said "my heart is broken for her."
The comments were his first about the slaying since he pleaded guilty.
Nunn is the son of the late Louie B. Nunn, a Glasgow Republican who was Kentucky governor from 1967 to 1971.
