Deadline Set For Death Penalty Pursuit In Jassy Correia Murder Case


Boston, MA) -- The Providence Journal reports a judge on Tuesday gave federal prosecutors a September 10th deadline to decide if they will seek the death penalty against the Providence man accused of a fatal kidnapping. Louis Coleman allegedly abducted Jassy Correia outside of a Boston nightclub in February 2019. Correia's body was found in the trunk of a vehicle driven by Coleman in Delaware. The federal judge in Boston yesterday said Attorney General Merrick Garland's moratorium on federal executions does not stop prosecutors from being able to seek the death penalty.
