KSP: Murder suspect has is hearing impairment

BOWLING GREEN, KY (WAVE) – New details are emerging in the south-central Kentucky case of a pregnant woman who was murdered and her baby taken from her body. Kentucky State Police say the woman charged, 33-year-old Kathy Coy of Morgantown, is hearing impaired.

On April 13, police arrested Coy in Bowling Green after they say she showed up at a Bowling Green hospital with a baby that Coy said she gave birth to. Nurses at the Medical Center in Bowling Green became suspicious and called state police. Troopers say Coy killed the infant's mother, 21-year-old Jamie Stice of Bowling Green, and then took her baby.

The Warren County Commonwealth's Attorney's office says he will use the 60 days given to him to prepare his case.
