Feds: No death penalty for Ricky Kelly

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man once charged with eight different murders in the Louisville area won't lose his own life.

The U.S. Attorney's Office has decided not to seek the death penalty against Ricky Kelly.

In federal court, Kelly is only one charged with killing one person.

The worry was that prosecutors wouldn't be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Kelly was responsible for all of the murders.
