Kentucky man accused of killing family could face death penalty

Ryan Champion, the Kentucky man accused of killing his family and another man in Trigg County, could face the death penalty.

On Wednesday, Commonwealth Attorney G.L. Ovey filed a notice of aggravating circumstances outlining the intentional killings of Lindsey, Joy and Emily Champion as well as kidnapping while committing murder.

Ovey says the Commonwealth plans to use the notice to seek the death penalty.

Also in court, Champion entered a not guilty plea and introduced his new attorney. 

His next court appearance is scheduled for February 13th.
