HOPKINSVILLE, Ky.


Prosecutors have until July 23 to tell the U.S. Supreme Court why a Kentucky death row inmate should not get a hearing before the high court.

Justices set the deadline in the case of 42-year-old Kevin Wayne Dunlap. Attorneys for Dunlap reached an agreement with his attorneys to allow the appeal after he sought to waive his appeals. The attorneys asked for a review of the case on May 19.

Dunlap, a former soldier at Fort Campbell with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, a unit known as the "Night Stalkers," pleaded guilty in February 2010 to attacking Kristy Frensley as she worked in the yard her Trigg County home in 2008. Dunlap killed 5-year-old Ethan Frensley, 17-year-old Kayla Williams and 14-year-old Kortney Frensley before lighting the house on fire.
