Prosecutors seek life in prison in arson death

Lafayette — Prosecutors are seeking life in prison without parole for a man accused of starting a central Indiana house fire that killed a 6-year-old girl.

Tippecanoe County prosecutors filed the request Wednesday, citing as aggravating factors that the death occurred during the commission of an arson and with a victim younger than age 12.

Thirty-three-year-old Ryan M. Moynagh faces a murder charge in the Nov. 9 death of Katelyn Sue Lane. He hasn't been tried or convicted in that case and faces a Friday status hearing.

The Journal & Courier reports Katelyn suffered third-degree burns and smoke inhalation following the fire at a house near Lafayette. She was later pronounced dead at a Lafayette hospital.

A message seeking comment from defense attorney Michael Trueblood wasn't immediately returned Thursday.
