PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)  — A Pulaski County man is in custody in Kentucky after being arrested in Michigan.

Terry Hensley, 46, was indicted on murder and persistent felony offender charges in August, but he was just picked up out-of-state this week.

Somerset Police said on Feb. 4, Hensley was driving a car that crashed into a pole killing his passenger, 36-year-old Amanda Woodall Goodman. The crash happened at the intersection of Grande Avenue and East Mt. Vernon. Detectives reported Hensley was under the influence of methamphetamine.

Goodman's mother, Darlene Campbell, said her daughter shares an eight-year-old son with Hensley. She claimed Goodman was in a ten year abusive relationship with Hensley and she believes the crash was no accident. Campbell said she watched surveillance video of it and told us, "I think he intentionally did it."

Hensley declined to speak with us at the Pulaski County Detention Center, but said by phone he is wrongly accused. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 20.

Campbell has been raising the couple's eight-year-old son. She said he misses his mother terribly and prays for her every night. She encourages people in violent relationships to leave before they get hurt. "I just want justice for my daughter because he was mean to her all the time."

Somerset Police declined to comment on Campbell's claims about the crash. A spokesman said the investigation details will come out in court.
