Kentucky State Police said 41-year-old Ann L. Plotkin of Hopkinsville was arrested Wednesday after a Trigg County grand jury indicted her.

Plotkin is charged with complicity to commit capital murder and resisting arrest. She is being held in the Christian County jail.

Online jail records didn’t indicate whether she is represented by a lawyer.

Ryan Champion has pleaded not guilty to murder, complicity to murder and complicity to kidnapping in the deaths of his parents and sister and a 22-year-old man, Vito Riservato.

Prosecutors have said they believe the 36-year-old Champion enlisted help from Riservato in killing his family, then killed Riservato.
