The state of Alabama will not seek death by lethal injection for Michael Joe White, Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens told potential jurors in the case Monday. Now, if he is convicted of capital murder as charged, White faces mandatory life in prison without possibility of parole.

The death penalty was taken off the table at the request of the family of Harvey Edison, who White and Antoine Watts allegedly shot during a robbery at Edison’s home on Avenue H in May 2006. Capital murder charges remain pending against Watts.
