Monroe County prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in a murder case that stretches to the Carolinas.

Prosecutors are seeking the penalty against Rico Herbert.

He's charged with killing Joseph DeVivo, 87, of Stroud Township.

DeVivo went missing in February.

Police say Herbert was found driving DeVivo's car in North Carolina.

DeVivo's body was later found in South Carolina.

Investigators say Herbert may have targeted DeVivo because of information he got from someone else but that person still hasn't been identified.
