LIVINGSTON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18/WPSD) – New information reveals what led up to the shooting death of a 15-year-old last weekend in Livingston County.

Investigators say Peyton Hurt was shot at a party held at the suspected shooter, 19-year-old Tyler Jones’ grandparent’s house.

Detectives say Peyton heard a song on the radio and said that she and Jones had listened to it together.

That’s when officials say Jones’ fiancée figured out that he had been cheating on her.

Police say Jones went into his grandparents’ house, took his grandfather’s gun, then allegedly shot Peyton.

Tyler Jones is charged with murder. His fiancée, Alexis Johnson is facing charges related to hindering the investigation.
