The state says it will seek the death penalty for a woman charged in the shooting death of a funeral home director's wife.
Rose Delores Vincent is charged with first-degree murder in the December 8th death of Julie Bowling, who was shot to death in the garage of her Rocky Mount home.
Assistant District Attorney Keith Warner said Tuesday during a hearing that he would seek the death penalty for Vincent, who's confessed.
Bowling's husband, Mark Bowling, also was charged with murder and had a hearing scheduled for today in Nash County Superior Court. Warner has said previously he planned to seek the death penalty for Mark Bowling.
Police say Vincent and Bowling were linked romantically before the Bowlings married.
Vincent's lawyer said he doesn't believe the case warrants a death penalty and doesn't foresee a death verdict based on what he knows of the case.
Bowling and his wife operated three funeral homes.
