GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Graves County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a death involving a tractor.

Deputies were called to 4040 State Route 131 around 2:30 p.m. when they discovered that 49 year-old Janice Douglas was assisting her husband who was digging holes with a post-hole digger attached to a tractor. When it was in operation, the glove or sleeve on Douglas' right arm became entangled, which eventually severed both of her arms.

She was transported to Jackson Purchase Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.

This case is still being investigated.
