A 29 year old man accused of killing a convenience store clerk in December is expected to be arraigned today.
Freddie Arturo Delariva faces charges of first-degree murder and robbery for the December Tenth stabbing death of 35-year-old Annette Martinez.
He's being held in lieu of one million dollars bail.
After the arraignment, Pueblo County prosecutors will have two months to announce whether they will seek the death penalty.
District Attorney Bill Thiebaut says he's not a supporter of the death penalty, but he says he'll enforce the law and determine whether capital punishment is appropriate.
Colorado's last execution was in 1997 when Gary Lee Davis became the first inmate in the state to be put to death by injection, and the first to be executed in 30 years.
Two inmates are on Colorado's death row.
