Couple apprehended in Eagle Point Bay shooting investigation

December  5,  2012  –  Late  this afternoon John L. Cunningham, 41, and his wife,  Janet S. Cunningham, 43, were taken into custody without incident by Kentucky  State  Police  and  U.S.  Marshals  near  Madisonville, Kentucky.

After  an  extensive  manhunt  began  late  Monday  night leading police to locations  in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky, the couple was found sleeping in a stolen pickup  truck at a truck stop near Madisonville.

The Cunninghams  fled the Eagle Point Bay area, located in a rural area of Northern Johnson County, Monday night after a male victim was shot  during  an  incident. The victim has since been treated  and  released  from the hospital.

The Cunninghams, both convicted felons,  are  persons  of  interest  in  the shooting and are being held on Johnson  County  charges  of  aggravated  vehicular  hijacking,  aggravated battery  with  a  firearm  and  unlawful  possession  of weapon by a felon.

Additional charges are anticipated.
