SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for an inmate accused of killing a Utah prison guard with his own gun while trying to escape during a hospital visit.
The Salt Lake County district attorney's office notified 3rd District Court of its intention if 30-year-old Curtis Allgier is convicted in the 2007 shooting of corrections officer Stephen Anderson.
That notice came Monday - the same day authorities approved Allgier's request for an April 20 jailhouse wedding. Salt Lake County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Rollin Cook confirms that a woman he won't identify wants to marry the heavily tattooed white supremacist.
Cook says it will be a simple wedding, with Allgier and the woman separated by a glass panel and unable to exchange rings or a kiss.
