Investigators say Joshua Mahaffey and Joshua Scott broke into 20-year-old Ashleigh Marie Lindsey's home in the 13000 block of Cardinal Ln. in Kingston around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon.
"It looks like one of the individuals entered though the back door the same time the other entered through the front I believe Mr. Mahaffey was armed at the time the individuals went inside and resulted in Ms. Lindsey being shot killed and Mr. Mahaffy shooting himself," Jones said.
Lindsey was four months pregnant. Marshall county Sheriff's deputies arrested 21-year-old Joshua Scott in connection with Lindsey's murder then they say he admitted to killing another Marshall County man, 43-year-old Chad Page, earlier that same day hiding his body at Fobb Bottom Rd.
Scott told deputies he stole Page's car before picking up Mahaffey and breaking into Lindsey's home.Scott faces charges for both murders.
"First case is for murder of Mr. page which first degree murder charges will be filed in addition to stolen vehicle charges. Second case first degree murder charges will be filed for Ms. Lindsey's death and felony murder charges for the death of Mr. Mahaffey," Jones said.
Deputy David Jones says that's because after Scott killed Page he gave the gun to Mahaffey who shot Lindsey then himself.
Jones says they had been looking for Mahaffey for several weeks because he had threatened Lindsey and attacked her before.
The case is still under investigation.
Scott is being held without bond.
