Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against suspect in Parkland school massacre


He says Cruz will rot in hell no matter when it is that he arrives there. His attorneys have said he is willing to plead guilty if they take the death penalty off the table.

In its filing, the prosecution said that, among the aggravating factors spurring its decision, were that Cruz knowingly created a risk of death for many people, his crime was aimed at hindering "any government function or the enforcement of laws" and that the shooting was "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel".

The commission will consider proposals that call for raising the age of weapon purchases to 21, banning bump stocks, a ban on types of semi-automatic rifles and extending the waiting period for gun purchases.

Anthony Borges, 15, was shot five times. After surgeries, his condition was upgraded to fair, his attorney and the hospital said.

Satz said he filed a "notice of intent to seek death" in the 17 first-degree murder counts stemming from the February 14 rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 14 students and three adults dead.

Cruz was arrested shortly after committing the Valentine's Day killings and fleeing the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School campus among terrified students.

Prosecutors will seek to put Nikolas Cruz to death for carrying out last month's massacre at a Parkland, Florida, high school, they announced in court filings Tuesday.

Cruz, 19, was previously indicted on 17 counts of first-degree premeditated murder by a Broward County grand jury.

Borges' family has filed notice that they will sue Florida authorities to seek money to cover the cost of his recovery.

His lawyers have let it be known he is prepared to plead guilty if he is guaranteed not to receive a death sentence.

Standing mute means the defendant will not plea either "guilty" or "not guilty". His defense attorneys had tried to prevent a death-penalty trial by bargaining with prosecutors for a life sentence in exchange for Cruz's guilty plea.
