WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) -- The death penalty will be sought against one of four people charged in the Dec. 13 shooting death of a Cape Fear Community College student in downtown Wilmington.

During a hearing before Judge Jay D. Hockenberry in New Hanover County Court on Tuesday, Assistant District Attorneys Barrett Temple and Connie Jordan announced the state will seek the death penalty if Quintel Grady, 22, is convicted of murder in the shooting and robbery of Joshua Proutey, the 19-year-old Clayton teen who was attending Cape Fear Community College. "It's not gonna change anything. You can kill those people 10 times over and it's not going to do anything for me," Proutey's mother Patty said by phone from her home in New York. "It's still like a bad dream."

According to Wilmington police, Proutey was carrying a sub sandwich and had just gotten off work at the Hannah Block Community Arts Center at Orange and Second streets about 10 p.m. Dec. 13 when Grady; Christopher Cromartie, 23; and Daniel Henry, 17, confronted him in the parking lot.
