JAMESTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A prosecutor in central Kentucky will seek the death penalty for a man charged with killing a pregnant woman during her morning run in June.
Russell County Commonwealth's Attorney Matthews Leveridge filed a motion Thursday outlining aggravating circumstances in the June 14 death of 31-year-old Sarah B. Hart. Twenty-eight-year-old Christopher Allman is charged with murder, kidnapping, robbery and tampering with physical evidence -- a charge that arises from the effort to hide Hart's body.
Police say Allman strangled Hart to death and tried to hide her body off a field near U.S. 127 in Jamestown.
Russell Circuit Clerk Tony Kerr told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/OPI2al ) that Leveridge also filed a notice to use statements Allman made to police at trial.
Allman has pleaded not guilty.
