Suspects in family killing get death penalty-certified lawyers
The pair accused of murdering 7 Indiana family members now have lawyers who are certified to handle death-penalty cases.
An Indianapolis judge assigned the public defenders today, with prosecutor Carl Brizzi saying he will seek capital punishment. Brizzi calls the crime scene a "house of horrors," and describes one of the suspects as "a serial killer who did all of his work in one day."
3 of the victims were children -- the youngest age 5.
According to court documents, the pair allegedly picked the house believing it held a safe stuffed with cash and cocaine. The police chief says that was nothing more than a rumor.
Both suspects are expected back in court tomorrow for initial hearings.
