Ryan Champion will be tried separately from co-defendant
Ryan Champion, a man facing the death penalty in Trigg County, will be tried separately from his co-defendant.
The judge denied a motion on Friday to have both Champion and Ann Plotkin’s trials together.
Champion’s trial date is February 20, 2017.
There will be another court appearance for both Champion and Plotkin on August 19.
A judge will then decide Plotkin’s trial date.
Champion is accused of killing his parents, sister, and another man – Vito Reservato – and trying to frame Reservato for the murders.
Plotkin is charged as a co-conspirator in the case.
