Death sentence recommended for man who admitted killing three children

SMITHLAND, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky jury has recommended a
death sentence for a man who admitted killing three children.
The recommendation to send Kevin Wayne Dunlap to death row came
Wednesday after nearly three hours of deliberation in Livingston
County Circuit Court.
Dunlap pleaded guilty on Feb. 9 to the slayings along with an
attack on the children's mother at their home in rural Trigg County
in 2008. The former Army soldier also pleaded guilty to rape,
kidnapping, arson and tampering with evidence.
Commonwealth's Attorney G.L. Ovey showed photos of the three
slain children - ages 17, 14 and 5 - during his closing statements.
