ELDRED TWP., Pa. -

Prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty against a Monroe County man accused in a fatal shooting attack.

Garry Flyte is awaiting trial for the March shooting deaths of his neighbors, 54-year-old Jeffrey Place and Place's stepson Steven Powell.

The victims' dog was also killed in the attack in Eldred Township.

Police say Flyte told them he heard voices, telling him to shoot his neighbors.

Flyte's family says he has a history of drug use and paranoia.
