A Frankfort woman was taken into custody in connection with the Sept. 4 shooting that claimed the lives of 24-year-old Coty Brumback and his dog in a downtown parking garage.

Nena M. Washington, 39, was served an arrest warrant by the Frankfort Police Department Friday evening. She has been charged with complicity to murder and is being held in the Franklin County Regional Jail on a $100,000 full cash bond.

Washington is the second person charged in the case.

Antonio Bolling, 40, was charged with murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, tampering with physical evidence, second-degree cruelty to animals and second-degree persistent felony offender shortly after the shooting, which occurred in the St. Clair parking garage off Catfish Alley. He has pleaded not guilty and is being held at FCRJ on a $1 million full cash bond.

Brumback and his dog, Baloo, a blue heeler, were fatally shot in the St. Clair parking garage Sept. 4. Bolling allegedly shot Baloo before shooting Brumback. The incident stemmed from a heated exchange between the two earlier in the evening, according to police.

“At some point when the victim left the street and went to the parking garage, he was followed — him and his friends — by our suspect and apparently the altercation rehashed,” Frankfort Police Department Capt. Dustin Bowman said.

Bolling was arrested a short time later and police confirmed a weapon was recovered.

The persistent felony offender charges were added because Bolling was convicted of two counts of first-degree trafficking in cocaine in 2016. He pleaded guilty and was given three years’ probation.

It was his second stint on probation.

Four years prior, Bolling was sentenced to two years’ probation on assault and criminal trespass charges — both misdemeanor offenses that were reduced from felonies. In that case from an incident in October 2010, Bolling went to his ex-girlfriend’s house and broke her new boyfriend’s jaw by punching him in the face.
