Pulaski Co., VA - Pulaski County prosecutors say they plan to seek the death penalty against a man accused of killing his baby.

32-year-old Howard Cole is charged with capital murder and illegal disposal of a body. The Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney says prosecutors will drop a child abuse charge, so they can focus on the capital murder case.

In January police found the body of Cole's 5-month-old son, Cory, in a wooded area in Draper. The baby's mother is charged with child neglect.
