Homicide Day update: debating death

Prosecutors announced Thursday they will not seek the death penalty against brothers Aaron and Akeem Ashford. The brothers are accused of shooting a mother of six outside the north Charlotte strip club where she worked.

Four other defendants, prosecutors said, will also not be tried for their lives. The defendants are: Shea Cook, Willie Lennon, Zachary Rogers, and Jonathan Smith.

The murder case against Davon Landell Thomas, scheduled to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty on Thursday, was postponed. Thomas is accused of killing his girlfriend, Tigist Yemane.
