GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma prosecutor plans to seek the death penalty for a man accused of fatally shooting a sheriff’s deputy.
Logan County District Attorney Laura Thomas says she will seek the ultimate punishment because 45-year-old Nathan LeForce is a threat to society and that the crime he’s accused of is particularly heinous and cruel.
LeForce was charged Thursday with first-degree murder, larceny of a vehicle and armed robbery.
Logan County Deputy David Wade died Tuesday after he was shot while serving an eviction notice near Mulhall, about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City.
