EARLE, Ark. (WMC) - A man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, her son and one other person made a court appearance Friday.
Ezekiel Lindsey’s trial was set for Dec. 9 on three capital murder charges.
A medical examiner said both adults killed in the fire had gunshot wounds, but that Chassidy Brown and her 5-year-old son Josiah both died in the fire.
The state will have 60 days to decide if they will pursue the death penalty for Lindsey.
No one spoke on camera but the families of Jones and Brown agreed they want to see Lindsey sentenced to death.
Lindsey faced a Crittenden County judge Friday via video conference. The victims’ family members were in the courtroom, some of them wearing shirts honoring their loved ones.
