An eastern Kentucky man who pleaded guilty to the fatal shootings of three people at a college campus will spend the rest of his life in prison.
He pleaded guilty in May to killing his former girlfriend, 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett; her uncle, 53-year-old Jackie Cornett and her 12-year-old cousin, Taylor Jade Cornett. The plea agreement removed the possibility that Stidham would get the death penalty if convicted.
Police have said that Stidham had a child with Caitlin Cornett and the group had met in the parking lot of Hazard Community and Technical College to exchange custody of the 2-year-old boy.
