KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) - A man has been indicted on murder and other charges after a woman was found dead during a well-being check.

Dillion Brewster, 26, was indicted on charges of murder, kidnapping and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to court documents.

According to police, officers were called to a home on Brewster Lane around 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 for a well-being check.

Kameryn Recchia, 25, was found with a gunshot wound by officers, police said. She died at the scene.

Brewster is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center.

“To take a young mother’s life is just senseless and tragic,” said Kenton County Prosecutor Rob Sanders.

Sanders says Brewster was found in Ohio in Recchia’s car with Recchia’s young child and “a bunch” of Recchia’s property.

The murder charge against him carries a domestic violence specification.

“The fact that there is a man that would do this to a woman… You know, men shouldn’t be hitting women or abusing them in any way,” Sanders said.

Only Brewster, Recchia and Recchia’s young child were in the room when the alleged murder happened, Sanders says.

He expects the child to be found “of such tender years that they won’t be competent to testify in a court of law.”

Because of that, his office is having to rely on forensic and circumstantial evidence in the case.
