Kentucky man now charged with 3 murders, shooting at lawman

Authorities say a man captured after allegedly shooting at a state police trooper has now been charged with killing an eastern Kentucky couple and their adult son.

Kentucky State Police said Thursday that three murder charges were filed against Paul Douglas Sizemore, who was captured Wednesday when officers found him walking on a nearby road.

Sizemore was initially charged with attempted murder of a police officer for allegedly ramming his car into a police cruiser and shooting at a trooper who responded to the killings. The trooper wasn’t injured and Sizemore fled the scene on foot Monday evening.

Sizemore was charged after he was questioned about the shootings of 64-year-old Larry Bowling, his 61-year-old wife, Norma, and their 38-year-old son, Chad.
