DARLINGTON, South Carolina — Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against a man charged with murder in the shooting death of a 21-month-old girl in Hartsville.

Local media outlets report that in court papers filed Thursday, prosecutors said the case was eligible for the death penalty because Timothy Sanders killed the toddler for money or something else of value and on behalf of another person.

Also charged with murder in the case is the toddler's mother, April Dixon.

Authorities have released few details about the case. Investigators say Madison Dolford was shot in the chest in December 2013.
