Man Charged with Murder in June 7 Fatality Crash in Henderson County
A Reed man, who was part of a two vehicle crash in Henderson earlier this month, has now been charged with murder in the death of a woman who died at the scene. Kentucky State Police presented their findings of the June 7 fatal collision to the Henderson County Attorney’s office and the findings led to 42 year old William Patterson being charged with murder. He was served at the Henderson County Detention Center where he was already lodged. Patterson allegedly crossed multiple lanes of travel on US 60 in Henderson and struck a vehicle, driven by 54 year old Sharon Gaines, who died at the scene. Patterson was originally charged with an aggravated offence of DUI and driving on a suspended license.
