WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Sedgwick County prosecutors have decided not to seek the death penalty against a man charged with killing two people at a Wichita Dollar General Store.
District Attorney Marc Bennett announced his decision Thursday during the arraignment of Marquis Marshall, 19.
Marshall is accused of killing an employee and a customer at the Dollar General store in November 2012. Police say Zachary Hunt, 22, and Henry Harvey, 79, were shot several times.
During Thursday’s hearing, defense attorney Ron Evans asked that a not guilty plea be entered on Marshall’s behalf.
