EDMONTON, Ky. – The state medical examiner's office says a south-central Kentucky couple whose bodies were found in their home were shot to death. Family members say the 15-year-old charged with killing them had been told he wasn't allowed to see his 12-year-old girlfriend.
Kentucky State Police on Wednesday charged the boy with murder in the deaths of 50-year-old Gary Holloway and 51-year-old Barbara Holloway at their home near Edmonton, a rural area more than 100 miles south of Louisville. They were the boy's guardians.
Police had issued an Amber Alert for the 12- and the 15-year-old after a relative discovered the Holloway's bodies Tuesday, fearing they might be in danger.
Police said Wednesday preliminary autopsy results showed Gary Holloway died from multiple gunshot wounds and Barbara Holloway died of a single gunshot wound.

Police who issued an Amber Alert for a 15-year-old, fearing he might be in danger after his guardians were found dead in their home, instead charged him Wednesday with murder in their killings.
The alert was issued Tuesday after a relative found the bodies of 50-year-old Gary Holloway and 51-year-old Barbara Holloway at their home near Edmonton, a rural area dotted with dairy farms more than 100 miles south of Louisville. They also asked the public to be on the lookout for a 12-year-old girl who had been reported missing by her parents and was later found unharmed with the 15-year-old. She has not been charged.
"At the onset of the investigation we had to consider every possible scenario, the possibility that they were perpetrators as well as victims," state police trooper Bill Gregory said.
Steve Massey, who identified himself as Gary Holloway's brother, said Wednesday he did not know of any problems the couple had with the teenager.
"That's out of my league," he said from the driveway of his brother's modest, vinyl-sided house. "I have no idea. You're asking the wrong person."
Massey described his brother as a former dairy farmer and said he was a "regular country boy" who liked to fish and hunt. He confirmed his brother was the teen's guardian but did not elaborate on the relationship and sped away in his car before reporters could ask additional questions.
State police say they found the teen driving his guardians' car in south-central Kentucky on Tuesday night.
The Amber Alert described the Holloways' car, and police say a firefighter alerted them after he saw it in Barren County. Gregory said the firefighter followed the car until state police cruisers caught up with it. There was a short chase when police tried to pull the car over about 15 miles from where the couple was found, and the 15-year-old drove off the road. Police say he and the 12-year-old ran away but were caught quickly.
Police interviewed the two and said Wednesday morning that the boy had been charged with murder, fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, reckless driving and driving without a license. They have not said whether he will be charged as an adult. The girl was released to her parent.
Police have not released a motive and said they do not know much about the Holloways' personal lives or how exactly they were related to the 15-year-old.
State police say more charges could be filed after a grand jury investigation.
