A religious cult leader convicted of killing a family of five in 1989, which he referred to as "pruning the vineyard," will be executed on Oct. 10, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled Thursday. Jeffrey Lundgren, 56, was convicted of shooting to death a man, his wife and his three daughters who had moved from Missouri in 1987 to follow Lundgren's teachings. Lundgren formed a religious cult after he was dismissed in 1987 as a lay minister of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A religious cult member who sat in on meetings where the ritual murder of a five-member family was discussed pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. Susan Luff, 31, told Common Pleas Court Judge James Jackson that she should have told authorities about cult leader Jeffrey Lundgren's plan to kill Dennis and Cheryl Avery and their three daughters. "It was morally and legally wrong" not to do so, she said.
