In a recent interview District Attorney, Amy Milliken said further charges could be brought based on the extent of Paul's injuries. According to a source, the two men had not spoken in several years and a rift between the pair possibly stemmed from Boucher's distaste for Paul's politics. They also had a previous disagreement about a property line involving a creek behind the lawmaker's house. WNKY News' Cecilia Herrell spoke with Boucher's attorney, Matthew J.
