SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police say a Scottsville man made a public apology on Facebook minutes before the mother of his infant child was shot to death.

Media outlets report 23-year-old Ethan Reid is charged with murder-domestic violence in the shooting death of 20-year-old Kaylah Hodges.

Scottsville Police Detective John Rose says officers responded to a Scottsville home at 5:24 p.m. Monday and found Hodges shot once in the back on the front porch. Rose says Hodges was taken to a hospital where she died.

Police found Reid inside the home.

An apology was posted at 4:59 p.m. Monday on a Facebook account that police say belongs to Reid. It says in part, “Sorry guys. I’m truly not this bad of a person. I’ve been pushed to this point over of time.”

It’s unclear if Reid has an attorney.
