KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — A Mohave County prosecutor says he'll seek the death penalty against a man charged in the murder of an Arizona girl.
Justin Rector has pleaded not guilty to charges including first-degree murder and kidnapping. He was arrested shortly after the body of 8-year-old Isabella "Bella" Grogan-Cannella was found near her home in Bullhead City.
The notice of intent to seek the death penalty was filed Wednesday, the same day Rector appeared in court asking a judge to let him represent himself.
The judge made no decision on the request but ordered that Rector undergo testing to determine his level of competency. Rector's attorney, Harry Moore, says Rector's prolonged methamphetamine use might impact his client's ability to aid in his defense.
Rector told police he smoked meth on Sept. 2 when Isabella was reported missing.
