A man is facing trial after hiring a hitman to kill his parents and sister, but ended up killing the hitman himself.
Ryan Champion, 36, from Kentucky has been charged with one count of murder, three counts of complicity to commit murder and complicity to commit kidnapping.
Prosecutor G.L. Ovey was pushing for the death penalty for Champion on the grounds of him paying someone for murder, however when Champion murdered the hitman himself it turned the tables on the whole case.
It’s currently unknown why Champion put contracts on his family members, and why he decided to change his mind. One can only hope it was a realisation of how horrific that would have been.
The trial continues.
