Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says he will seek the death penalty for Sergio Martinez-Perez. Last month prosecutors say Martinez-Perez broke into 93 year old Louise Sollowin's house and raped and beat her while she slept.
Kleine tells 1110 KFAB the there are two aggravating circumstances that merit the death penalty, the brutal nature of the case and the fact that the crime was committed to conceal his identity.
Prosecutors say Martinez-Perez had been drinking when he broke into the house and attacked Sollowin. Police found him passed out on top of Sollowin.
