Obituary: JACKSON, Ky. -- Two brothers were shot to death at their home in a Millers Branch hollow,
and police reported that a lifelong acquaintance was charged in the case. The bodies of Denver Lee Stamper,
32, and James Stamper, 36, were found sometime after 2 a.m. EDT Tuesday by their brothers,
Beckham Paul Stamper and Kenny Stamper of Jackson. Kentucky State Police said the men had been shot
with a .22-caliber rifle and a .22-caliber handgun. State police said Ronnie Landrum, 28, has been charged
with two counts of murder, one count of burglary and one count of possession of marijuana.
State police investigators said that someone broke into the house and killed the brothers about 10:30 p.m. Monday.
But Jackson Police Chief George T. Lee said his department received a report of two shots being fired about
2:10 a.m. Tuesday. Relatives said the brothers had lived in the house for three or four years and never locked
their doors. They did not have a telephone, and their closest neighbor was a sister who lives within a mile.
Survivors besides their brothers include their parents, Viola and Letch Stamper; three other brothers:
Virgil Stamper of Franklin, Ohio; Cecil Stamper of Berea; and Junior Stamper of Jackson; five sisters:
Hazel Turner of Otisville, Mich.; Mary Spicer of Altro; Kay Spencer of Clay City, Lizzie Riley and Gay Allen

Obituary: A. C. "Ab" Russell, former dean of the University of Louisville School of Law, died Wednesday
at his home after a long illness. He was 90. Russell, dean of the law school from 1946 to 1957,
joined the U of L staff in 1938 and retired as distinguished professor of law in 1972.
The native of Jackson, Ky., graduated from Berea College in 1928 and from Yale Law School in 1930.
After serving with the FBI for five years, he practiced law in Frankfort until joining the U of L faculty.
He served as acting dean for three years during World War II.
A bronze bust of Russell, by sculptor Barney Bright, was placed in the rotunda of the school in 1972 in
recognition of his many years of service.
In 1948, Russell revised the Kentucky Civil and Criminal Codes, which governs court procedure of civil and
criminal cases. His book, "Russell's Kentucky Practice and Service," which covered the same area of all the
rules, provisions and statues that relate to the practice of civil and criminal cases in Kentucky, was published
in 1953. He put out a supplement once or twice a year and made a complete revision about every 10 years.
In 1955, he and James R. Merritt, who later became dean of the law school, wrote "Wills and Administration
of Estates in Kentucky." At one time he also drafted the rules of criminal procedure for Kentucky for the
Legislative Research Commission. Russell was a member of the Kentucky and Louisville Bar associations, and
the Filson Club. He was a member of the American Arbitration Association and the National Academy of
Arbitrators and served on the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services panel of arbitrators.
His survivors include his wife, the former Anna Stamper; two daughters, Mary Russell of Laurel, Md., and
Anne R. Nicholas; a son, Andrew J. Russell of Crestwood; four grandchildren; and a great-grandchild.
There will be a private graveside service in Berea. Visitation is at Pearson's, 149 Breckenridge Lane,
from 6 to 9 p.m. today.
The family suggests that memorial gifts be made to
