In addition to capital murder charges, Christopher Kirby is charged with felonious assault, aggravated robbery, grand theft and tampering with evidence.
Initially implicated in the killings, Jacqueline Kirby faced no more than one year of jail or prison time for receiving stolen property and misuse of credit cards, the charges she was convicted of in February.
With credit for time served, she still faces five months in jail if she fails to complete the treatment program. Oda also barred her from contact with the surviving victim or family, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said.

After the beatings, the Kirbys used Debra Power’s credit cards and a TV taken from Ronnie Power’s room to get heroin they used before being arrested, according to testimony in the February trial.
At trial, Jacqueline Kirby was found guilty of receiving stolen property and misuse of credit cards, but not guilty of tampering with evidence.
Oda ruled Assistant County Prosecutor John Arnold failed to prove Kirby was guilty of the tampering charge that alleged she disposed of Debra Power’s purse.

Both sides rested after a video of Jacqueline Kirby’s statement was played, during which she struggled to recall what happened.
“I was pretty high,” she told detectives who encouraged her to cooperate so she could face lesser charges and get back with her two children.
She was led back to jail after the verdict, but Oda said he wanted her assessed for placement in community-based corrections before deciding her punishment.

On Thursday, her lawyer, Tamara Sack, said the sentencing - initially scheduled for Friday - was moved up due to a scheduling conflict she had.
It was unclear if Jacqueline Kirby would testify against her husband in a two-week trial in Oda’s court, scheduled to begin on Oct. 22.
