Gibson County Prosecutor's Office has decided he will not seek death penalty against accused killer Jason Perry.
Perry is accused of shooting Jesica Tice in front of their 13-year-old son and several other witnesses back in May, in the parking lot of a Mexican restaurant in Princeton.
Prosecutor Robert Kreig says the facts of the Perry case did not meet state statutes for a death penalty case. He says case law also did not support the death penalty.
Kreig says he is seeking life without parole for Perry.
Perry is currently being evaluated by a mental health professional for competency.
