(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of murder after his parents and sister was killed in a murder for hire plot, police in Kentucky said.
Trigg County prosecutors said that they have charged 36-year-old Ryan Champion on Wednesday, with 1 count of murder, 3 counts of complicity to commit murder and 1 count of complicity to commit kidnapping.
The police investigation began when officers found the dead body of 22-year-old Vito Riservato, in the family home in Cadiz.
The suspect’s parents and sister were found dead of gunshots wounds along with Riservato.
Detectives believe that the suspect hired Riservato to kill his parents and sister and then killed him instead of paying the fee for the murder.
Prosecutors said that they will seek the death penalty for champion.
The dead parents were identified as Joy, 60, and Lindsey, 62, and the suspect’s sister was identified as 31-year-old Emily Champion.
The suspect was booked into the Christian County Jail, and bail was set at $5 million.
