Evansville murder suspect could spend life in prison

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The man accused of shooting two men during a drug deal, killing one of them, could spend the rest of his life in prison.

The Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's Office is requesting a life without parole sentence enhancement for Earl Martin.

Other enhancements include habitual-offender and felony committed with a firearm.

This request is before any additional charges are filed for the death of Erica Bradfield.
