Posted at 2:10 PM, Mar 04, 2019

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (WPSD) —  New court documents show that the Commonwealth of Kentucky will not be seeking the death penalty against accused Marshall County High School shooter Gabriel Parker.

According to WPSD Local 6, the Commonwealth says it intends to seek life in prison without probation or parole until Parker had served a minimum of 25 years of his sentence.

The Commonwealth’s attorney says that due to Parker’s age he is not allowed to seek the death penalty and that he will seek the maximum sentence.

Parker is facing two counts of murder and 14 counts of first-degree assault for the January 2018 shooting which claimed the lives of two Marshall Co. High School students.
