Owen County Sheriff Zemer Hammond’s son was one of three charged in May with murdering a man whose body was dumped in Frankfort. Now, Hammond’s daughter has been charged with trying to kill the sheriff.
Kentucky State Police said they arrested 35-year-old Heather Hammond of Glencoe Thursday. A preliminary police investigation indicated she pointed a loaded gun at her father on Oct. 5, but it jammed and didn’t fire. She’s charged with attempted murder and wanton endangerment.
The sheriff’s daughter is in custody of the Carroll County Detention Center.
His son, Joshua Hammond, was charged with murder in May after a man’s body was found near Interstate 64 in Franklin County.
