The WAVE, 92.7 FM radio, Columbia-Russell Springs, KY
The man who was charged with the 2006 murder of Columbia businessman Rex Coffey has been released from jail. 92.7 The WAVE has learned that Wellie Paul Grant of the Glens Fork area of Adair County was released from jail today, Friday, January 11, 2013, on a $100,000 unsecured bail bond by Special Judge James Bowling.
Wellie Paul Grant was arrested in 2006 following the murder of Rex Coffey at the Beech Grove Separate Baptist Church Picnic Ground on KY 900 West of Glens Fork. Rex Coffey was the owner and operator of Rex's Cycle Shop on Cambellsville Road in Adair County.
The news of Grant's release devastated the Coffey family. 92.7 The Wave spoke to Rex Coffey's daughter Leslie Coffey, "You work all your life to be a fine, upstanding citizen in Adair County and this is what you get." She said that the Coffey family was notified only 15 minutes before Grant was released.
