WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) –The District Attorney's Office will seek the death penalty for at least one man accused of being involved in the death of a delivery driver that happened earlier this summer.

Authorities plan to seek the death penalty for 20-year-old Haughabook in this case.
Marvin White, 18, and Nathan Lawrence, 16, were indicted for robbery with a dangerous weapon.
District Attorney Ben David said the case is a priority to his office and that in North Carolina, a 16-year-old is considered an adult. Judge J.H. Corpening said the 15-year-old can't face capital punishment, but can spend the rest of his life in prison.
