Life in prison for Va. couple in family’s fire deaths

HARRISONBURG, Va. — A Virginia couple have been sentenced to life in prison for the slayings of a West Virginia family.

Lorie Ann Taylor-Keller and her husband, Nakia Keller, were sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg. Each faces life in prison under plea agreements.

The Fulks Run couple pleaded guilty to more than a dozen charges in June. The charges included crossing state lines to kill Taylor-Keller’s ex-husband, 36-year-old Dennis “Chip” Taylor; his wife, 39-year-old Alliana Taylor; and her 5-year-old daughter, Kaylee.

The victims were fatally shot and their home in Hardy County, W.Va., was burned in October 2009.
