The Prince George's County State's Attorney in Maryland says she will seek the death penalty for a Texas man accused of fatally shooting four people, including two children, in August.
Angela Alsobrooks said Friday that she would seek the death penalty against 44-year-old Darrell Lynn Bellard of Dickinson, Texas.
Bellard and 18-year-old Tkeisha Nicole Gilmer, also of Texas, were charged with murder in the slayings.
The bodies of 3-year-old Shayla Shante Sikyala; 4-year-old Shakur Sylvester Sikyala; their mother, 38-year-old Dawn Yvette Brooks, and their aunt, 41-year-old Mwasiti Sikyala, 41 were found in a trash-filled apartment above a detached garage in Lanham.
Police said the victims were shot to death.
No trial date has been set.
