KANSAS CITY, Kan.— Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark A. Dupree Sr. announced Friday that he will seek the death penalty for the man charged with  shooting and killing two Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies if he is convicted on capital murder. The state of Kansas hasn't had an execution since 1965, but does have the sentencing option of death by lethal injection.

Antoine Fielder

Antoine Fielder, 30, has been charged with two counts of capital murder for allegedly killing Deputy Patrick Rohrer and Deputy Theresa King on June 15, 2018.

He's also charged with aggravated robbery for allegedly stealing Rohrer's gun, which he used in the shooting.

King and Rohrer were killed when a shackled Fielder allegedly took one of their guns and fired at them. District Attorney Mark Dupree said the capital murder charge is because he allegedly premeditated killing the deputies.
