Police search for 2 suspects in plot to kill McCreary County, Ky. woman


WHITLEY CITY, Ky. (AP) - Police say neighbors likely saved the life of a southern Kentucky woman who was attacked by three men outside her home.

Media cited police in reporting that neighbors, who went to check on Debbie Taylor after seeing a suspicious vehicle nearby, found her handcuffed and being attacked by men wearing military-style fatigues who identified themselves as FBI agents. When the neighbors refused to leave, the men drove off.

Police say they arrested Timothy Prater of Somerset on Friday and charged him with criminal conspiracy to commit murder, impersonating a peace officers, robbery and unlawful imprisonment, but they were still searching for two other suspects.

Prater told WYMT-TV in a jailhouse interview on Sunday that he got involved in an effort to protect Taylor and tried to stop the assault.
