LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The death penalty may be an option when a jury hears a case in connection to the murder of a 6-year-old boy.

The Woodford County Commonwealth's Attorney tells WDRB he will pursue capital punishment against Ronald Exantus.

Exantus is accused of breaking into a Versailles home earlier this month. He allegedly attacked Logan Tipton with a kitchen knife as the young boy slept.

Tipton's father held Exantus down until police arrived.

Exantus will be back in court next Wednesday.
