Death Penalty Sought For Nunn
We've been following the strange case of Steve Nunn ever since the murder of his former fiancee, Amanda Ross. A manhunt for Nunn ensued after her body was found, and police tracked him down in a Hart County cemetery where his mother and father (former Gov. Louie B. Nunn) are buried. Reportedly, Nunn fired a pistol into the air when officers arrived, and was discovered to be bleeding profusely - he had slit his own wrists in an attempted suicide.
Fayette County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson says his office has "filed a notice of aggravating circumstance and notice of intent to seek the death penalty in the Nunn case."
