Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against two people charged with the murder of a Birmingham couple.

24-year-old Zachary Phillips and 30-year-old Kristen Gullion are charged for the murders of Mary and Joe Holt. Officers say the suspects stabbed the couple to death during a robbery last year.

They’re also accused of kidnapping the couple’s 3-year-old granddaughter , tying her up with a phone cord and leaving her in a bathtub. The child was not injured. Officers say both were on probation for separate theft-related crimes at the time of the murders.
