Accomplice in 2014 Trigg Murders Denied Parole
By West Kentucky Star Staff
LA GRANGE - The woman who helped Ryan Champion kill his parents and sister in their Trigg County home in 2014 has been denied early parole.

According to WKDZ, Ann Plotkin has served four years of a 22-year sentence, but went before the parole board asking for early release for medical reasons. 

Commonwealth's Attorney Carrie Ovey-Wiggins says Plotkin made the request because she has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

On Thursday morning, Ovey-Wiggins said, "My office just received a call from one of the victims letting us know the good news that parole had been denied. Obviously, this was the wish of the Commonwealth that she not be granted parole, and we are thankful that the parole board did not decide to release her early due to any medical issues that she may have."

Plotkin plead guilty to three counts of complicity to murder related to the shooting deaths of 62-year-old Joe Champion, 60-year-old Joy Champion and 31-year-old Emily Champion on October 26, 2014. She helped Ryan Champion plan the murders and communicated between him and hired killer 22-year-old Vito Riservato, who was also shot to death at the scene. 

After initially telling police that he was present when his family was attacked and survived because he was able to "turn the tables" on Riservato, investigation led to Ryan Champion's arrest five days later. Eventually he plead guilty to murder and kidnapping, and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
