OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The Weber County attorney's office says it will seek the death penalty against a man charged in the shooting deaths of two women.
Jacob Ethridge is charged with aggravated murder in the July 2008 deaths of Teresa Tingey, 43, and Rosanna Cruz, 25. Ogden police said the women, who worked as prostitutes, were shot after being solicited by Ethridge.
The state Supreme Court declined recently to entertain a motion in the case, which could now go to trial as soon as this year.
The attorney's office on Wednesday filed a required notice of intent to seek the death penalty.
