Death Penalty Sought For Suspect

A prosecutor in Morgan County plans to pursue the death penalty for a jail escapee, charged with killing his ex-girlfriend.

The Mt. Sterling Advocate reports the Morgan County Commonwealth's Attorney will seek the death penalty for Robin Mapel.

Investigators Mapel shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, Melissa Patrick, after escaping from the Montgomery County Jail.

A grand jury indicted Mapel last month on charges of capital murder and kidnapping.
