Former Kentucky state lawmaker Steve Nunn has pleaded not guilty to the September murder of his former fiance.
The 57 year old Nunn is accused of fatally shooting 29 year old Amanda Ross outside her Lexington apartment.
His attorney entered pleas of not guilty Thursday to charges of murder and violating a domestic violence protective order.
Fayette County Commonwealth’s attorney Ray Larson would not say if he’ll seek the death penalty for Nunn.
“I think it’s better to pay attention to the file, the court file, because we’ll be filing appropriate notices at some point,” Larson said.
Nunn’s attorney, Warren Scoville, declined to comment after his client’s arraignment.
Nunn also faces a wanton endangerment charge in Hart County related to the case.
