Prosecutors to seek the executioners' needles for captured Haitian man accused of killing family
By The Associated Press
NAPLES, Fla. — Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for a Haitian-born man accused of cutting the throats of his wife and five children.

A state attorney’s office spokeswoman said paperwork was filed Thursday morning declaring prosecutors’ intentions in the case against 33-year-old Mesac Damas.

Damas is charged with killing his 32-year-old wife, Guerline, and their children who ranged in age from 19 months to 9 years old. Their bodies were discovered Sept. 19 in the family’s Naples town house.

Damas has pleaded not guilty, although when he was arrested in his native Haiti he admitted his guilt to a reporter and said he wanted to be executed. Later he told investigators that “bad spirits” made him do it.
