A Burnside pastor accused of killing three people in a Danville pawn shop in September may be put to death if the Commonwealth's attorney gets his way.

Richie Bottoms announced last week that if Kenneth Keith is found guilty, he will seek the maximum penalty.

Mark Stanziano, Keith's attorney, said he's not surprised, but will continue to maintain his client's innocence.

When it comes to safety in the area where the shooting took place, businesses have said they're not concerned.

In fact, at least one new business has announced its plans to open on Fourth Street in just a few weeks.

In addition, Steve Divine, the property owner of the pawn shop where the shooting happened, has said he wants to reopen the store in a month or two without changing its name.
