Charged with murder of husband Larry Gilliam

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

Lisa Gilliam, 42, charged with murdering her husband of 44 days — London lawyer Larry Gilliam — surrendered to London Police just after 11 a.m. Tuesday.

After turning herself in to Detective Alan Harris, she was taken to the Laurel Detention Center.

An arrest warrant had been issued earlier in the day, said London Police Chief Stewart Walker.

An indictment charging her with the Jan. 7 murder of her husband was returned in Laurel Circuit Court Friday.

Just before 3 p.m. Jan. 7, London police were sent to the office in the 100 block of East Fourth Street.

Walker said when his officers arrived at the office, they found that Larry Gilliam, 59, had a single gunshot wound in the chest. He was taken to Saint Joseph-London hospital where he died.

A team including the London police, Laurel sheriff’s deputies and the Kentucky State Police investigated the shooting along with the state medical examiner and the KSP forensic laboratory.

He said Lisa Gilliam was the only other person in the office and she called the 911 dispatch center.

She had been taken to the police station, “so she would have some kind of knowledge of what was going on.” At that time, she wasn’t being detained.
