A domestic dispute ended last Monday with a man in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and his wife behind bars.

Last Tuesday afternoon, Mark Lundy, 34, was listed in fair condition at University Hospital in Louisville. Lundy’s wife, Jill Renee Lundy, 30, was still in custody at the Nelson County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond. She is being charged with first-degree assault (domestic violence), a class B felony.

If convicted, Jill could serve between 10 to 20 years in prison.
Jill called Nelson County Dispatch around 10 a.m. Monday and said she had shot her husband at their residence on 7451 Woodlawn Road.

Dispatchers told police there had been an argument and Jill Lundy had become fearful.

According to a citation written by Detective Jonathan Snow of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, Mark Lundy told police that he “came at” his wife, and she shot him.

Police said the shooting appears to be domestic.

The accused declined to give a statement to police after she was taken to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning, according to police.

Deputies on the scene of the shooting closed off the long gravel road leading to the house where the shooting reportedly occurred.

Deputies were securing the scene and confirmed there had been a shooting at that location, but could not release any other details.

Around 10:30 a.m. they were still waiting for detectives to obtain a search warrant.

After obtaining the warrant, officers discovered an extensive indoor marijuana-growing operating, along with several pounds of processed marijuana.

By the time police arrived at the scene, the victim had been transported by a private vehicle to Flaget Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for gunshot wounds and was subsequently flown to University Hospital.

His father, Dalton Lundy, told The Kentucky Standard that he received a call from his son, who told him he needed to go to the hospital.

The father said he found his son on the side of the road and transported him to Flaget Memorial Hospital. He said his son was still conscious when he found him, but he did not know what caused the shooting or who was responsible.

At Flaget Monday, Detective Jason Allison said Mark was treated for multiple gunshot wounds.

Jill was arraigned on one count of first-degree assault (domestic violence) in Nelson County District Court Tuesday.

Five years ago, the Lundys were involved in an altercation with Joseph Walker, which ended in gunfire and Walker being indicted on two charges of attempted murder, according to The Kentucky Standard’s archives.

In the 2009 incident, according to the Standard’s reporting at the time, Mark Lundy allegedly struck Walker and inflicted a laceration on his head. The investigator said Walker then returned to his residence, retrieved a pistol and allegedly fired several shots, which hit the truck of the Lundys, who were attempting to leave because of the incident.
