Amber Sullivan Trial Enters Day Two

Local News

Wednesday is the second day of the Amber Sullivan trial in Henderson.

The day included testimony of a firearms expert who examined the gun prosecutors say was used to kill her husband William Zachary Sullivan.

28-year-old Amber Sullivan is charged with murder in her husband’s death last summer.

Authorities say she initially told them the shooting happened after an argument.

However, police say Amber told different stories during the investigation.

They say, at one point, she said the gun accidentally discharged.

During Wednesday’s testimony, a firearm expert from the Kentucky State Police talked about the gun used the night of the fatal shooting.

Kentucky State Police Firearm Examiner Leah Collier said, “The only external safety is not a lever or a button. It’s basically integrated into the trigger. It’s basically the center of the trigger protudes through and must be depressed with the trigger to be moved, but it’s not really your typical external safety you would see where it’s a lever or a button.”

Officials also said the glock 19 had an automatic laser sight on it.
