Florida prosecutors seeking death penalty against Nikolas Cruz in school shooting

Florida prosecutors seeking death penalty against Nikolas Cruz in school shooting”

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student is credited with saving the lives of 20 students by attempting to close and lock a classroom door during the February 14 attack where 17 people were killed in Parkland.

Satz formally submitted a notice of intent to seek death with the Clerk of Courts on Tuesday.

Satz has announced he will seek the death penalty for Nikolas Cruz, charged with multiple counts of murder after a shooting massacre in Parkland.

Cruz's public defender has argued that he suffers from serious mental illness, noting that he will enter a guilty plea if prosecutors agree to not seek the death penalty.

Cruz now "stands mute" to the charges against him.

The only other penalty option for Cruz is life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Also in the docs obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say they want to choose the mental health expert who will evaluate Cruz should the defense raise his mental health as a mitigating factor in the crime.

"Because that's what this case is about". Not, should he go free?

Finklestein's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
