LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Fayette County prosecutor has filed the paperwork to seek the death penalty against former state lawmaker Steve Nunn in the murder of his ex-fiancée.

29-year-old Amanda Ross was shot outside her Lexington home on the morning of September 11, 2009. Nunn was later arrested that day at a Hart County cemetery after attempting suicide.

On April 5, a Fayette Circuit Judge ruled Nunn is competent to stand trial in the case.
