OSWEGO, Kan. (AP) -- An assistant Kansas attorney general says there's no decision yet on whether the state will seek the death penalty for a man accused of killing a Parsons woman and her three children.

But Assistant Attorney General Amy Hanley declined to comment further Wednesday about the prosecution of 22-year-old David Cornell Bennett Jr., of Cherryvale. The alternative to a death sentence in a capital case is life in prison without parole.

Bennett is charged with capital murder, rape and criminal threats in the deaths of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger and her children, ages 4, 6 and 9. Their bodies were found Nov. 25 in their southeast Kansas home.

Bennett returned to Labette County District Court on Wednesday and listened quietly a judge read the charges during a 10-minute hearing.
