Prosecutors in Jefferson City will seek the death penalty against a man charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
According to online court records, a notice of intent to seek the death penalty was filed Friday against Brandon Rapier. Rapier is charged in a double homicide that took place in November 2016. He stabbed his ex-girlfriend, 27-year-old Ciera Kolb, and another man, 27-year-old Micah Hall, in Cole County, the charges allege. Both Kolb and Hall later died from their injuries.
