    The Taylor County Detention Center is slowly, but surely, filling its cells.

    As of last Monday, Taylor County Jailer Rick Benningfield said, the jail was housing 26 state inmates. As of Friday, that number had risen to nearly 100.

    Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy Allen Newton says, however, that he believes Huff left Campbellsville of his own free will.
