WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Sedgwick County prosecutors have decided not to seek the death penalty against a man charged with killing two people at a Wichita Dollar General Store.

District Attorney Marc Bennett announced his decision Thursday during the arraignment of 19-year-old Marquis Marshall.

Marshall is accused of killing an employee and a customer at the Dollar General store in November 2012. Police say 22-year-old Zachary Hunt and 79-year-old Henry Harvey were shot several times.

During Thursday's hearing, defense attorney Ron Evans asked that a not guilty plea be entered on Marshall's behalf.
