(KSL News) The man accused of shooting and killing the manager of a Glendale neighborhood dollar store may be considering a plea deal.

Lawyers for Biu Benjamin Olive say they are hoping to finalize a deal that would sentence Olive to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Olive is charged with capital murder in connection with the March 12 death of Wallace Knapton.

Since Olive was only 17 at the time of the crime, he is not eligible for the death penalty. But he could be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole if the case goes to trial.
