Murder case to attempt mediation again

CATLETTSBURG An Ashland man accused of gunning down his girlfriend two years ago will have one last go at a plea negotiation ahead of a looming trial date.

In October 2021, Taylon Bensinger was charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree wanton endangerment after police say he shot and killed 24-year-old Angel Rowe at a residence in the 3000 block of Montgomery Avenue.
