PITTSBURGH - Prosecutors in western Pennsylvania say they plan to seek the death penalty in the slaying of a mother of six outside a Pittsburgh bar earlier this year.
Allegheny County officials said capital punishment will be sought if 22-year-old Dorian Peebles of Pittsburgh is convicted of first-degree murder.
District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said the slaying occurred during the commission of another felony, others were put at risk and the defendant has what Zappala called a "significant history" of violent felony convictions.
Peebles and 21-year-old James Lawrence have been charged in the Feb. 28 shooting death of 28-year-old Tiona Jackson outside a bar in Beltzhoover.
Lawrence and another man are also charged in the March 30 slaying of a man pulled off a party bus following an argument with several women.
