DA to decide penalty status of killing case

Raleigh News & Observer

HILLSBOROUGH - Orange-Chatham District Attorney Jim Woodall could announce plans this fall for a fifth capital murder trial in a district that hasn't sent anyone to the death chamber since 1948.

On Wednesday, a judge scheduled a Rule 24 hearing for Kenneth White, 40, accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, Ebony Robinson, 21, and their unborn child whom family members named Elijah. Woodall is scheduled to announce at the hearing Oct. 28 whether he'll pursue the death penalty for White.
