DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) — A Dinwiddie County prosecutor says she will seek the death penalty against the man charged in the shooting death of a Virginia state trooper.
Commonwealth's Attorney Lisa Caruso announced her intentions Friday at Russell Ervin Brown's arraignment. The 28-year-old Chesterfield County man is charged with capital murder in Thursday's slaying of 63-year-old Master Trooper Junius Walker.
According to media reports, Brown said in court that he expects to be executed.
