Ray's Attorney Asks for New Trial
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - A man convicted last year of trying to kill his ex-wife in Graves County wants a new trial.

Forty-nine-year-old Brady Ray was in court this week for his sentencing hearing, at which time, the judge heard a motion from Ray's attorney for a new trial. Ray's case was continued to Feb. 19 at 10:30 am for sentencing. The judge will rule on the motion for a new trial on that date as well.

A Graves County jury found Ray, of Arlington, guilty of attempted murder, robbery, burglary, wanton endangerment, and violation of a Kentucky emergency protection order/domestic violence order.

Police say Ray broke into the Mayfield home of his estranged wife in January 2017 and attacked her with a hammer. The woman and a child were able to escape out a bedroom window and run to a neighbor's home to get help.

Ray reportedly chased after them but left. He was arrested the next day in Nashville, TN.

The jury recommended Ray spend 65 years in prison.
