BRUNSWICK, Ga. – A prosecutor says he will seek the death penalty for a 22-year-old man charged with killing his father and 7 others inside the family's mobile home in coastal Georgia.
A Glynn County grand jury indicted Guy Heinze Jr. on Monday on eight counts of murder.
District Attorney Stephen Kelley says the mass killings justify the death penalty.
Heinze was charged with the slayings days after he reported them in a frantic 911 call in which he cried "my whole family's dead."
The victims included Heinze Jr.'s father, uncle and several cousins who lived in the mobile home just north of the port city of Brunswick.
An attorney for Heinze Jr. has said his client was not involved in the slayings and will be exonerated.
