By law, State's Attorney Joseph Birkett was required to state his intentions regarding capital punishment within 120 days of indictment.
"The gravity of the offense is just one factor," he said, declinining to elaborate on his decision. "I carefully examined the facts regarding both men. I met with the (Kramer) family, and they understand and support the decision."
Both Nodarse and Borizov have pleaded not guilty.
