Prosecution Will Not Seek Death Penalty in the Rafael Robb Case

Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor, who evidently intends to prosecute the case himself, announced on Thursday that the Commonwealth will not seek the death penalty in the case of Penn professor Rafael Robb, who is accused of brutally bludgeoning his wife to death. Interesting decision. Castor said that its not a death penalty case because there are no aggravating factors present. Not that I am a cheerleader for the death penalty, but the brutality of the killing would seem to me to be an aggravating factor. Unless Castor knows something of which I am not aware.
