Death penalty sought for marine accused of murder

A marine could face the death penalty if convicted of murdering a superior officer at Government House.
Jevon Seymour, 34, was arraigned on a capital murder charge Friday in connection to the fatal shooting of 52-year-old Petty Officer Percival Perpall.
The shooting happened around 2:30am on April 28 in the guard room. Two other marines, Ellis Rahming and Calvin Hanna, were also shot in the incident but survived.
Seymour faces charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life in respect to their shootings.
Seymour, who is on remand, denied the charges at his arraignment before Justice Carolita Bethell, as supporters proclaimed his innocence outside court.
His case has been assigned to Justice Bernard Turner for trial.
