A prosecutor has announced he will seek the death penalty for an 18-year-old Asher man charged in the shooting death of an East Central University student.

Jerrod Murray is charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 6 shooting death of 18-year-old Generro Sanchez of Stuart. Both were students at ECU in Ada at the time.

District Attorney Richard Smothermon said in court papers that Sanchez begged for his life before Murray shot him in the head twice as Sanchez was driving Murray to a nearby store. The document says the car the two were in crashed into a tree and Murray then shot Sanchez a third time in the head.

Murray has pleaded not guilty.

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday in Pottawatomie County District Court.
