The Humboldt County District Attorney’s office will not seek the death penalty for the man accused of two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder in 2012.


In court Wednesday, the prosecution announced that it instead is seeking life in prison without the possibility of parole for Jason Warren. 


He is accused of killing Humboldt State Geography instructor Suzanne Seemann as well as injuring two other joggers in a hit-and-run near freshwater. 


Warren also allegedly fatally stabbed Dorothy Ulrich, at her Hoopa home, on the same day.


Warren will appear again in court on March 18 for a preliminary hearing.  His trial is set to begin this August.
