Two Corbin residents have been arrested in connection with a shooting Saturday in Gray, but it remains to be seen whether they will be charged with murder in the case.


Kentucky State Police Trooper Shane Jacobs, public affairs officer at Post 10 in Harlan, said police arrested 33-year-old Lawrence Collinsworth and 33-year-old Jennifer Folgman on charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. In addition, police served Collinsworth with a warrant charging him with parole violation.

Collinsworth and Folgman each pleaded not guilty to the charge Monday in Knox District Court.

According to the arrest citations, Collinsworth and Folgman were allegedly involved in a shooting on the Right Fork of East Creek Road that claimed the life of 26-year-old James Stanley Havens, Jr.

State Police were called to the scene about 12:45 a.m. where Knox EMS personnel were treating a male subject, later identified as Havens, that had been found shot and was lying in the roadway.

Havens was taken by ambulance to Baptist Health Corbin where he was pronounced dead from the single gunshot wound.
