Rowan District Attorney Bill Kenerly said this morning he will not seek the death penalty against Candice Jo Drye, 23, who is one of three people accused of murdering Salisbury dentist Dr. James David Boyd, who was found strangled to death in his home.
She appeared for a Rule-24 hearing today to determine whether the District Attorney would seek the death penalty.
Her co-defendants, Christopher Boyd, 21, and Jonathan Barnett, 18, did not appear in court since their attorneys are on vacation this week.
