Pair From Kentucky Accused Of Driving For Hours With Corpse

MT. VERNON, Ky. (AP) — Two people from Kentucky face abuse of a corpse charges after police say they drove around for three or four hours in with an overdosing man in their car.

WKYT-TV reports ( ) court documents say Morgan Dixon, David Spoonamore and Jerry Price II drove from Rockcastle County, about 55 miles (88 kilometers) south of Lexington, to Madison County, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north, to buy drugs last July. Price overdosed while the three were in Berea. Documents say Dixon and Spoonamore never sought help for Price, who died while he was with them.

Witnesses also told police they saw Price’s body being dragged. When his body was later found in his minivan, he had grass in his eyes, nose and mouth and his pants were around his knees.

Dixon and Spoonamore face a judge on Monday. A phone directory had no number listed for either person.
