LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Nearly twenty years after two young women were shot and stabbed to death at a Kentucky massage parlor, two former police officers stand charged in connection with their deaths.

Edward Carter and Leslie Duncan are among three men charged in the 1994 slayings at the New Life Massage Parlor in Oak Grove. Carter and an Alabama man were indicted late last week on two murder counts. Duncan was indicted on two counts of complicity to murder.

Investigators are being tight-lipped about how the ex-cops are allegedly linked to the slayings. But Tammy Papler, the woman who once ran the parlor, claimed years ago that she had been bribing police to allow her to operate what was in essence a prostitution business and that the killings took place after she stopped paying.
