GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma prosecutor has filed formal notice that the state will seek the death penalty for a man charged in the killing of a deputy sheriff.

District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas filed the bill of particulars Thursday stating 45-year-old Nathan Aaron LeForce should be put to death if he's convicted of a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of Logan County Deputy David Wade.

LeForce remains jailed and court documents don't list an attorney to speak for him.

The document notes that Wade was a law officer, that the shooting was "especially heinous, atrocious and cruel" and that LeForce would continue to be a threat to society.

Prosecutors say LeForce fatally shot Wade as the deputy served an eviction notice in Mulhall, about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City.
