Jury Recommends Death for Michael St. Clairon January 24, 2012 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
A Hardin County, Kentucky jury has recommended the death penalty for Michael St. Clair, who was convicted last month of the kidnapping and murder of Frank Brady in 1991. This conviction brings St. Clair’s murder count to five.
After escaping from an Oklahoma prison in 1991, St. Clair and an accomplice went on a multi-state crime spree. On October 6, 1991, Distillery worker Frank Brady was abducted by the two at a rest stop in Hardin County, taken to a remote wooded area, handcuffed, and shot multiple times.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway said:
This verdict is the result of the hard work and dedication of the prosecutors, investigators, victims’ advocates and their support staff who never wavered from their commitment to seek justice in the kidnapping and murder of Frank Brady. My hope is that this verdict brings some closure to the Brady family.
Special Judge Tom Castlen has scheduled a sentencing hearing for February 1, 2012.
