DA won't seek death penalty in beating deaths

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man accused of bludgeoning his parents to death in 2009 will not face the death penalty.

The Orleans Parish district attorney's office made the announcement Tuesday during a hearing in which Orleans Criminal District Court Judge Laurie White set a Jan. 7 trial date for Michael Singreen, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

The Times-Picayune reports Singreen, who has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, is accused in the beating deaths of lawyers Shirley and Harry Singreen, who were found battered and bloodied in their home.
