FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — North Carolina prosecutors will seek the death penalty against a man accused of killing a Fort Bragg soldier celebrating his safe return after more than a year in Iraq.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Thursday that prosecutor Cal Colyer announced the state's plans during a court hearing for 26-year-old James Anthony Carr. Carr is one of four men accused of killing Sgt. Sergio Sanchez in 2008 outside a Fayetteville nightclub.

Police said the 22-year-old Sanchez, of Oxford, Ala., was shot in the head after he walked up on his friends who were being robbed at gunpoint outside the club. Sanchez was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division and had just returned from 15 months in Iraq.

Colyer said the other three defendants will not face the death penalty.
