Fort Campbell Workers Accused of Lying About Deaths

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Two Fort Campbell emergency dispatchers have been indicted on charges that they gave false statements to federal investigators who were seeking information about the fatal shootings of two people in central Kentucky.

Michelle L. Lovelace and Lindsey A. Brooks, both of Clarksville, were accused in a federal indictment of telling investigators they were with the suspect in a Fort Campbell parking lot until 1 a.m. on September 11.

Prosecutors said the two were requested by the suspect to lie to investigators.

Kentucky State Police have charged Army Sergeant Brent Burke with murder and other charges related to the shootings of Tracy Burke and her former mother-in-law, Karen D. Comer, in Hardin County, Kentucky.

Tracy Burke's oldest child, a 9-year-old boy, called 911 to report that his mother and grandmother had been fatally shot at his home.
