Comanche County prosecutors seek death penalty for Alonzo Flores

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_Comanche County prosecutors announced Wednesday they plan to seek the death penalty in the murder trial of Alonzo Flores.  

He's accused of stabbing and killing fellow inmate Sonny Limpy in Lawton's GEO prison in June of last year.

Prosecutors believe he ordered several other inmates to murder Limpy after he refused to join Flores's gang. 

Prosecutors said they're pursuing the death penalty because Flores is a continued threat to society, committing felony crimes even while behind bars.  

Flores waived his right to a speedy trial during Wednesday's court appearance.
