Prosecutor Contemplating Death Penalty

Last updated on Wednesday, July 24, 2013

(PRINCETON) - The prosecutor’s office is contemplating whether to seek life without parole or the death penalty for accused murderer Jason Perry.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports Perry allegedly gunned down 22-year-old Jesica Tice back in May, outside Los Aztecas restaurant in front of her son and mother.

At a pre-trial hearing Monday, Prosecutor Robert Krieg filed paperwork to add aggravated elements to the murder charge.

The judge also granted a motion for a psychiatric evaluation and set another pre-trial hearing for August 21st.

Perry's trial is expected to begin in September.
