Bond denied for Appleton; Divorce provided evidence

The ex-wife of alleged killer William Harry Meece apparently provided Kentucky State Police with the evidence they needed to bring charges against Meece and Margaret Ann (Wellnitz) Appleton in the decade-old murder case.

The Lexington-Herald is reporting that Detective Sgt. Dennis Benningfield tracked Meece's ex-wife down after their divorce, while he was following up on leads in the Wellnitz case. She claimed that Meece had confessed to the killings, and she was able to produce physical evidence linking him to the murder scene.

In addition, the Herald is reporting that Circuit Judge James G. Weddle denied bond for Appleton, at the request of Commonwealth's Attorney Brian Wright.
