By BRETT BARROUQUERE Associated Press
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of a western Kentucky man who pleaded guilty to killing three children and attacking their mother near Fort Campbell.
The high court on Thursday found a judge committed no errors in allowing 41-year-old Kevin Wayne Dunlap to admit to the killings in Roaring Springs and have a jury decide only if he would be condemned to death or face a lesser sentence.
Dunlap was sentenced to death March 19, 2010. He pleaded guilty to stabbing and killing 5-year-old Ethan Frensley, 17-year-old Kayla Williams and 14-year-old Kortney Frensley when they returned home from school on Oct. 15, 2008 near the sprawling Fort Campbell military installation on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
