According to the Randolph County Prosecutor, Mike Fusselman, a notice was filed at the Randolph County Courthouse Friday, April 12, 2013, seeking the death penalty in the case against Jeffrey Jay Nichols, 22, of Moberly and Christopher Demond Lewis, 18, of Macon.
The two men are accused of murdering Edina native Carmelita Kaser, 92, of Moberly at her home on Easter Sunday.
“We filed it this morning,” said Fulsselman Friday evening.
According to Fusselman more charges will eventually be filed against Nichols and Lewis.
“Once we have all the reports in we’ll file more charges,” stated Fusselman.
Nichols and Lewis are currently in custody. The men are being held, each with a one million dollar bond.
