CANTON, OH (WOIO) -

The Stark County man accused of murdering two women could be put to death for his crimes.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Leeroy Rogers, Sr.

Rogers, 58, was indicted by a grand jury last week on aggravated murder, kidnapping and weapons-related charges.

He pled not guilty of killing 47-year-old Kimberly Clupper and 23-year-old Kendra Carnes.

Clupper's body was in April 11 in a Massillon park and Carnes was found in August in a creek. Both had been shot in the head.
