The death penalty will be sought against the man accused of murdering a couple in Ventura County.

Prosecutors say Joshua Packer stabbed a pregnant Davina Husted and Brock Husted last May in their Faria Beach home during a robbery.

Packer has entered pleas of not guilty and has denied special circumstances.

A pre-trial hearing is set for February.
