Prosecutor Seeks Death Penalty in Double Murder

September 23, 2004

In New Albany, a prosecutor said he will seek the death penalty for an inmate charged with fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend and another man about an hour after escaping from a halfway house.

Jealousy may have been 39-year-old Kerry Wilson's motive, Prosecutor Keith Henderson said during a hearing Tuesday in Floyd County Superior Court.

Wilson, of Jeffersonville, is charged with murder in the Sept. 16 slayings of Vicki Hunt, 38, and Dajuan Clark, 22, at her home in New Albany. Both cities are just north of Louisville, Ky.

Court records show that Wilson has a history of domestic violence dating back at least 8 years. He was charged in April with choking and beating Hunt.

Wilson had been held since July 30 at the Dismas Charities Portland halfway house, which houses some inmates from Clark County to relieve jail crowding there. He was being held because Clark County prosecutors had filed a petition to revoke his probation.

Police said that Hunt's 13-year-old son was at home at the time of the attack but was able to leave the house without being injured.
