A North Carolina judge ruled on Monday that a man accused of killing three young Muslims in February could face the death penalty if convicted of murder.

Craig Hicks, 46, was indicted on three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of a newlywed couple who were his neighbors in Chapel Hill and the wife's sister, a college student.

During a brief court hearing, Hicks stared straight ahead, answering the judge's questions with “Yes, sir” before prosecutors presented evidence for pursuing the matter as a capital case.
