Inmate reaches deal on appeal in children's death

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A one-time Army helicopter mechanic at Fort Campbell facing execution for a triple homicide has reached an agreement with his attorneys to an appeal in his case.

The Kentucky New Era reported that 41-year-old Kevin Wayne Dunlap will allow his lawyers to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review his case as long as the legal team keeps him updated.

Dunlap pleaded guilty in February 2010 to attacking a woman and her three children at their Trigg County home 16 months earlier. Dunlap killed the three children and repeatedly stabbed their mother before lighting the house on fire. He was sentenced to death and has sought to end his appeals and expedite his execution.

Dunlap is a former soldier with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.
