On Thursday, June 20, the Kentucky Supreme Court upheld the death penalty for confessed and convicted murderer Kevin Wayne Dunlap.

The 140-page decision says Dunlap's 2010 sentencing trial was "fundamentally fair," and that the trial court "properly" accepted Dunlap's guilty plea. All of the sitting judges concurred. Justice Bill Cunningham is listed as "not sitting."

Dunlap pled guilty in early 2010 to charges relating to the October 2008 murders of Kayla Elayne Williams, 17, Kortney Lan Frensley, 14, and Ethan Zane Frensley, 5, to the rape and attempted murder of the mother Kristy Frensley, and to the setting of her house on fire in order to destroy evidence and cover up his actions.
