‘Chloe Randolph Bill’ goes to Senate floor

KENTUCKY (WFIE) - We are learning “The Chloe Randolph Bill” went to the Senate floor on Wednesday.

According to investigators, Randolph’s estranged husband killed her and hid her body in a utility closet then left town with their infant child. Authorities later arrested him in Arkansas.

Randolph’s parents weren’t allowed to bury their daughter, at first, because Kentucky’s law said that was the right of a spouse. Senate Bill 66 aims to change that.
