Family of murdered Ohio Co. woman protests inmate's release

Family and friends of a murdered Ohio County woman protest the release of a man who is charged with her death.

Vernon Calloway's release comes months after the release of his wife, Debra, who is also charged in the 1993 murder of Patricia Calloway. Both are still facing trial in the case.

Darrell Kessinger drove more than seven hours from Arkansas to attend a rally protesting the release of Vernon Calloway.

"I'm here to speak on behalf of my sister. My sister is dead and gone and his no voice," said Darrell Kessinger, "I feel like the judicial system has let not only our family down, but the Calloway family."

Prosecutors say the release was a result of a Kentucky House Bill which allows judges to change bond. Kessinger says he got a call yesterday from the prosecuting attorney's assistant informing him Calloway was released because of an illness.

Patricia Calloway's niece Ashton Kessinger says Patricia's death and Calloway's release has been hard on her family.

"Growing up with this for 20 years, watching your mother cry. It makes me sick," said Ashton Kessenger,"It makes me kind of scared to know that if this person is out there could be somebody else like that out."

Vernon Calloway and Debra Calloway's pretrial is set for June.
