Defense attorney fatally shot in Kentucky

SOMERSET, Ky. – Officials said a defense attorney well known in his small southern Kentucky town has been shot and killed outside his law office.

Somerset police said Mark Stanziano, 57, was shot multiple times about 8 a.m. Friday morning outside his downtown office.

Police have arrested Clinton D. Inabnitt, 40, of Somerset. They said witnesses have told them the man had been in contact with Stanziano on Thursday evening and had previously threatened the attorney.

Somerset is a town of 11,000 in Pulaski County in southern Kentucky.

In 2002, a former Pulaski County sheriff was killed in a plot at a political rally. Stanziano represented the man charged with the murder.

A biography on Stanziano’s law practice website said he had 30 years’ experience in criminal cases.
