PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Maricopa County Attorney will seek the death penalty for the two suspects, charged with murdering 10-year-old Ame Deal.

Prosecutors say John "Bud" Allen and Samanthea Allen locked Deal inside a storage box last July. Both of them have pleaded not guilty to the charges of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit child abuse and multiple counts of child abuse.
