PADUCAH, KY (Thu 22 Dec 2017) - KY State Police have arrested McCracken County Jailer Tonya D. Ray, age 43, of Paducah, KY.

She was lodged in the Christian County Jail, Hopkinsville, KY.
The case will be prosecuted by Christian County Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor, who was appointed as special prosecutor by the KY Attorney General's Office.
The investigation is continuing by Detective Cory Hamby.
