CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Court documents indicate a federal panel will consider later this month whether a man should face a death sentence if he’s convicted of killing two York County, South Carolina, residents.

WBTV reported (https://bit.ly/218jIIp) that a U.S. Justice Department panel will meet later this month to consider whether Malcolm Hartley should face a (possible death sentence.

Hartley is charged with murder in the October 2014 deaths of 61-year-old Debbie London and 63-year-old Douglas London at their homes in Lake Wylie, South Carolina.

WBTV reported the information was filed Monday in an appeal by Hartley’s attorney in an effort to obtain some information about the case from prosecutors.

The indictment says the Londons were killed to keep them from testifying against three gang members who had robbed the couple’s Charlotte mattress store.
