DeSisti Will Not Face Death Penalty
TOWANDA — Prosecutors have withdrawn the death penalty from a double murder case against a man in Bradford County.
The state attorney general’s office says since John DeSisti is in his mid-70s, they will not seek the death penalty.
DeSisti is accused of killing his cousin and her husband near Athens in 2006.
At a pre-trial hearing Thursday, prosecutors said they are ready to take the case to trial.
