INDIANA, Pa. (AP) - Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against two men accused of having killed a young couple in their western Pennsylvania home before fleeing with a safe.

Nineteen-year-old Justin Stevenson and 18-year-old Nathaniel Price are charged in Indiana County with homicide, conspiracy and robbery in the October deaths of 26-year-old Timothy Gardner and 20-year-old Jacqueline Brink.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/2jiyuzs ) reports that District Attorney Patrick Dougherty said Friday that capital punishment will be sought if the two are convicted of first-degree murder.

A third defendant is ineligible for the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the Cherryhill Township slayings.

The county coroner said Gardner was assaulted with a pipe and Brink struck with a baseball bat.
