A suspect in two deadly home invasions could face the death penalty.

During a status hearing this morning, prosecutors announced they will seek the death penalty against Ismael Castillo.

He’s charged with capital murder and other charges in a double shooting at a home on Coleman Avenue back on March 14. One of the victims, 19-year old Deandre Mathis, later died.

Judge Missy Medary set Castillo’s trial for Jan. 14.

Castillo is also charged with the April 2 home invasion, which left a couple dead in their home on Balchuck Lane.
