Prosecutors To Seek Death Penalty In Teen’s Death

KSCB News - November 19, 2010 12:00 am

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty

for the man accused of killing of a Kansas teen whose burned body

was found at a Great Bend asphalt plant.

Thirty-six-year-old Adam Joseph Longoria of Great Bend is

charged with capital murder and criminal sodomy in the August

killing of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt.

A plea of not guilty was entered Thursday on behalf of Longoria

on charges of capital murder, criminal sodomy, vehicular theft and

vehicular burglary. That followed a preliminary hearing in which

the judge found sufficient cause to proceed to trial. No trial date

was set.

Evidence introduced at the hearing included text messages

believed exchanged between them. Prosecutors also submitted DNA

evidence linking the two in the vehicle Longoria was driving. A

woman who was living with him testified he came home smelling of

gasoline.
