Prosecutor Says He'll Seek Death Penalty Against Couple

OCTOBER 17, 2006 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CDT

 

KANSAS CITY, MO - An Independence couple facing the death penalty in a sex killing in Clay County will face a second death penalty trial in another woman's death.

Jackson County prosecutor Mike Sanders says he will seek the death penalty against Richard Davis and Dena Riley.  They are charged in Jackson County with murder, rape, kidnap and sexual assault in the May death of 41-year-old Marsha Spicer.

Davis and Riley also face the death penalty in Clay County in the April 9 suffocation of Michelle Ricci.

Authorities have said they found videotapes in the couple's apartment showing them committing brutal sex acts on the two women.
