Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old former student accused of killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last month, will face the death penalty if he pleads guilty, the Associated Press reports. Prosecutors said they would seek the death penalty despite Cruz’s attorneys saying he would plead guilty if it was not pursued. The only other option for Cruz is life in prison, with no possibility for parole.
