Prosecutors Will Seek Death Penalty for Accused Stoneman Douglas Shooter

Prosecutors Will Seek Death Penalty for Accused Stoneman Douglas Shooter Prosecutors Will Seek Death Penalty for Accused Stoneman Douglas Shooter

The decision was not unexpected, and came one day before Cruz is scheduled to be arraigned on 17 counts of first-degree murder.

Florida prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old man accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school last month, according to a notice of intent filed by Broward State Attorney Michael Satz.

Cruz's case will be heard Wednesday before Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer.

Another factor: "The capital felony was a homicide and was committed in a cold, calculated and premeditated manner without any pretense of moral or legal justification". While they continue to acknowledge that he carried out the rampage, they cannot plead guilty while Cruz could be sentenced to death, Finkelstein said Tuesday. His defense attorneys had tried to prevent a death-penalty trial by bargaining with prosecutors for a life sentence in exchange for Cruz's guilty plea.

Broward County public defender Howard Finkelstein, whose office is representing Cruz, has said there were many warning signs that Cruz was mentally unstable and potentially violent, and that the death penalty might be going too far.

The only other penalty option for Cruz is life in prison with no possibility of parole. "We are not saying he is not guilty, but we can't plead guilty while death is still on the table". "The public gets to know everything about this guy that we've invested this time and these resources in".
