— Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for two brothers accused of killing two friends at an tailgating party near a North Carolina State football game.

Tony and Timothy Johnson each face two counts of first-degree murder.

Investigators say they shot and killed Brett Harman and Kevin McCann in September outside a football game.

Both men will be tried separately. Timothy Johnson's trial is scheduled to start first.
