Location of Crime Means No Death Penalty for Dad Accused of Sexually Assaulting, Killing Infant

Michigan man Steven Deuman Jr. is charged with a capital offense: sexually assaulting and killing his 15-week -old daughter in August 2011. Usually, prosecutors would seek the death penalty in a first-degree murder case such as this, but because the alleged assault and killing took place on an Indian reservation, Deuman will not face execution if convicted.
