Federal judge wants attorneys in a death penalty case to move toward a resolution

Breathitt County - A federal judge ordered attorneys in a long-running death penalty case to move toward a resolution.

The judge set a November meeting date for prosecutors and attorneys for 54 year ols Karu Gene White to set a schedule for resolving the case, which has been pending since 2002.

Proceedings halted in White's most recent federal appeal while he sought funding in state court to test if he has a mental disability.

White killed 75 year old Charles Gross, his wife, 74 year old Lula Gross, and 79 year old Sam Chaney during a February 1979 robbery in Breathitt County.
