Prosecutors to seek death penalty against Steve Nunn

Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against a former lawmaker accused of murder.

Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson tells 27 NEWSFIRST paperwork was filed Tuesday afternoon to seek the death penalty against Steve Nunn.

Just this week, a judge ruled Nunn competent to stand trial for the September murder of his ex-fiancee, Amanda Ross.

Larson says the death penalty is being sought because Ross had an EPO against Nunn at the time of the shooting.
