OKLAHOMA CITY — Prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty against a man accused in the 2009 deaths of a drug dealer and three women in Oklahoma City.

One victim was Brooke Phillips, who worked for a legal Nevada brothel featured in the HBO TV show "Cathouse." The others were Milagros Barrera, Jennifer Lynn Ermey and Casey Mark Barrientos.

The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/1Hhc16I ) reports Phillips and Barrera were pregnant.

Russell Lee Hogshooter is charged with six counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy. It wasn't immediately known whether he has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

Jonathan Allen Cochran is serving a 25-year prison sentence for his role in the killings. He testified Tuesday that Barrientos was the target and that the others were killed to eliminate witnesses.
