CANTON, Ohio — Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against a man accused of fatally shooting two women this year in northeastern Ohio.
A Stark County grand jury has indicted Leeroy Rogers Sr. on aggravated murder, kidnapping and weapons-related charges.
The Canton Repository reports (http://bit.ly/1YmHBKY ) last week's indictment included factors that can lead to a death sentence if Rogers is convicted.
A message seeking comment was left Monday at Rogers' attorney's office.
The 58-year-old Rogers is accused of killing 47-year-old Kimberly Clupper, whose body was found April 11 in a Massillon park. He also is accused of killing 23-year-old Kendra Carnes. Her body was discovered Aug. 5 in a creek. Both women were shot in the head.
Massillon police say a gun used to kill the women was found in Rogers' home.
