The district attorney says he'll seek the death penalty for the man arrested for last week's attack on two Meals On Wheels volunteers.
Tommy Lee Holiday made a brief court appearance in Nashville. After the DA announced the death penalty, he asked the judge to appoint a second attorney for Holiday.
Holiday is accused of killing Debbie Kornegay and wounding Eve Beasley while the two were preparing meals Thursday morning at a Rocky Mount church.
Security was extremely tight and Holiday was returned to Central Prison a short time later.
His next court appearance is scheduled for November 6th.
