A former helicopter mechanic with an elite Army special operations unit condemned to death for killing three children wants to end all his appeals.
Dunlap in December filed a handwritten motion in Livingston Circuit Court seeking an order barring his public defenders from filing any more appeals in his case.
Dunlap pleaded guilty in March 2010 to attacking Kristy Frensley at her home in Roaring Springs near Fort Campbell 18 months earlier and killing three children at the home before burning it to the ground. A jury recommended a death sentence.
