Clay Starbuck’s children respond to no-contact order

Clay Starbuck's children say a no-contact order imposed by Superior Court Judge Greg Sypolt is an “attempt by the state to tear apart our family.”

Blake Starbuck, 19, issued a statement Friday saying they will fight the order that stops convicted murderer Clay Starbuck from contacting his three minor children until he has a mental health evaluation. Starbuck may contact his oldest children, Blake and Austin, 22.

Starbuck was convicted of aggravated first-degree murder and sexually violating human remains in connection with the December 2011 slaying of his wife, 42-year-old Chanin Starbuck. In an unexpected twist during Starbuck's sentencing, prosecutor Larry Steinmetz asked Sypolt to enforce a no-contact order.

Starbuck will serve life in prison without the possibility of parole.
