Prosecutors Allow Death Penalty In Capital Murder Trial

In Corpus Christi, Judge Maricela Saldana said prosecutors will be allowed
to seek the death penalty in the capital murder trial of Charles Orr.

The defense attorney for Orr appeared before the judge and gave 16
different reasons as to why the judge should find the death penalty
unconstitutional in the case.

However, the judge denied all of the motions.

Charles Orr, 38, is accused of fatally shooting and killing 31-year-old
Jose Guadalupe Vasquez at the Christi Estates.

Orr's trial is set to begin August 14.
