Prosecutors may seek death penalty in Crow Reservation roadside shooting


HELENA – Federal prosecutors may seek the death penalty for an 18-year-old man charged in the deaths of a husband and wife who authorities say stopped to offer him help on the side of the road on the Crow Indian Reservation.

A new grand jury indictment filed Friday includes death as a possible punishment if Jesus Deniz Mendoza of Worland, Wyoming, is convicted of two counts of first-degree murder, carjacking that resulted in death or use of a firearm during crimes of violence.
