WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 19-year-old man accused of killing two people at a Wichita Dollar General store could face the death penalty, after being charged with capital murder.
Marquis Marshall was charged Wednesday in the killing of 22-year-old Zachary Hunt, a store employee, and 79-year-old Henry Harvey, who was at the store to buy candy for his grandchildren. Police say both men were shot several times last Friday.
Police have not discussed a possible motive for the shootings.
Marshall's bond was increased to $5 million from $1 million.
The Wichita Eagle reports an attorney from the Death Penalty Defense Unit declined to comment after the hearing.
The case qualifies as a possible death penalty case because more than one person died in the attack last Friday.
