HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – The Chloe Randolph Bill passed in the Kentucky State Senate on Wednesday and will now go to the Kentucky State House for consideration.
The bill would provide additional rights and protections for the families of murder victims.
It could prevent murder suspects from claiming the body of a victim after a crime.
Chloe Randolph was 20 when she lost her life in a brutal attack in Henderson last year.
Her estranged husband was charged with murder.
After her death, the family tried to get custody of her body but they couldn’t because current Kentucky law gives a spouse control of remains even if they’re involved in the death.
