The wife of Washington County Commissioner Terry Lee Baker filed for divorce Wednesday in Washington County Circuit Court, alleging abandonment.
Katrina Nannette Baker alleges in court documents that she was abandoned by Baker on Sept. 28.
She also filed an emergency motion for relief, alleging Terry Baker's refusal to pay bills relating to the couple's home. Katrina Baker requested an emergency hearing because she has insufficient means to support herself, she claimed.
Terry Baker was contacted Friday at Washington County Technical High School, where he works, and said he had not been served with the paperwork. He declined to comment further.
The two were married in July 1992 in Lexington, Ky., and do not have children together, according to a divorce complaint.
