2 more deaths in Kentucky attributed to winter storms

LONDON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky authorities say two more deaths have been connected to last week’s winter storms. The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that a preliminary autopsy report shows that a married couple found dead on Sunday at their home in London died of hypothermia. Deputies responded to the home of James and Dinah Duff after an acquaintance conducting a welfare check found the couple dead. Sheriff’s Deputy Gilbert Acciardo told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the home had no power for some period before the couple was found because snow and ice from the storms had damaged power lines.
