— A prosecutor says he plans to seek the death penalty for an Arkansas man accused of killing a 6-year-old girl who lived next door.

Prosecutor Van Stone said Monday that he plans to pursue the death penalty for 28-year-old Zachary Holly.

Stone said Holly pleaded innocent Monday to capital murder, rape, kidnapping and residential burglary charges in Bentonville, about 215 miles northwest of Little Rock.

Authorities arrested Holly several days after Jersey Bridgeman was found dead Nov. 20 in a vacant home next to Holly’s.

Stone says Holly is due back in court Feb. 28.

Jersey’s death came about a year after her father admitted to chaining her to a dresser.

He is serving an 18-year prison sentence in that case.

I don't know about this case as for as evidence, but in cases where there is irrefutable or DNA evidence and this type of act is committed then, PUBLIC HANGING.
