Former state lawmaker Steve Nunn appeared in a hearing in October 2014 in Fayette Circuit Court to get his life prison sentence vacated. Nunn pleaded guilty in 2011 to killing Amanda Ross in 2009, but later sought to withdraw the plea, saying his attorney failed him. On Thursday, the state Supreme Court issued a one-sentence statement declining to review a lower-court ruling that upheld Nunn’s guilty plea and his sentence of life without parole.
