Victims' relative: Spat began fatal US rampage

A relative of two people killed in a rural eastern Kentucky rampage says the shootings happened after an argument between the gunman and his wife over how she cooked his eggs.
State police say 47-year-old Stanley Neace killed five people with a shotgun Saturday morning before killing himself in a trailer park near Jackson.
Sherri Anne Robinson answered at a phone listing for Neace and says she is a relative of two of the victims. She says witnesses to the shootings told her that Neace became enraged when his wife did not cook his breakfast to his liking.
Robinson says that when his wife fled to a neighbor's trailer, Neace followed and shot his wife, his stepdaughter and three witnesses. Robinson says he allowed a young girl to flee to a neighbor's.
The shootings were in Breathitt County in the rugged eastern part of the state, almost 90 miles (145 kilometers) southeast of Lexington.
