Stretch of highway being named for slain deputy

LEDBETTER, Ky. (AP) — A section of highway in western Kentucky will be named in honor of a sheriff's deputy who died in the line of duty nine years ago.

A ceremony is planned at 10 a.m. CDT Monday at the Ohio Valley Baptist Church parking lot in Ledbetter in Livingston County.

Livingston County Deputy Roger Lynch was 51 years old when he was shot to death June 2, 2005, after responding to a domestic violence report.

The General Assembly directed that a portion of U.S. 60 be named in Lynch's memory.
