WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in Kentucky have charged two people with fatally beating a woman with a stick after following a trail of blood that led to a home.

WKYT-TV reported Monday that a Whitley County sheriff’s deputy found 36-year-old Michelle E. Marlow of Williamsburg dead in a bedroom. The deputy found a man and a woman elsewhere in the home with blood on them. Court documents say they couldn’t explain the blood.

A witness told investigators he saw the man and woman strike the victim in the head with a stick, and a second witness said he saw the man drag the woman inside.

Investigators arrested 38-year-old Chris James Lowe and 37-year-old Lori Chanell Mattie and charged them with murder. Lowe also is charged with tampering with physical evidence. It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
