Grand jury indicts woman charged in Laurel County murder
LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A grand jury has formally indicted a Laurel County woman accused of murdering a businessman in September.
The grand jury charged Victoria Strelsky with three counts: Murder, Forgery in the Second Degree, and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
Strelsky is accused of murdering 62-year-old Bryan McCarty on September 24, 2021. McCarty was found dead in his home the next day with multiple gunshot wounds after deputies were dispatched there for a welfare check, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office. A friend of McCarty’s said he rented out townhouses in the county and was supposed to attend a business meeting to agree on a sale of his properties when he was killed.
In March, McCarty’s girlfriend, Strelsky, was arrested at her home off Maple Grove Road.
Strelsky has previously pleaded not guilty to the initial charges.
