CORPUS CHRISTI - The trio of suspects charged with the murder of a local convenience store owner are now facing death themselves.

27-year-old Del Victoria Cavazos, 26-year-old Arturo Navarro and 26-year-old Daniel Garcia learned during a hearing this morning in Judge Jose Longoria's court, that prosecutors will seek the death penalty against them.

They are all charged with capital murder for their roles in the April 14th attempted robbery and shooting-death of 59-year-old Ben Mustafa, the popular owner of the Tim's Market on Ayers at Brownlee.

Daniel Garcia initially admitted killing Mustafa with an assault rifle. Now, his attorney has asked that he be given a mental health evaluation.

An August 18th trial date has been set. The three remain in the Nueces County jail.
