PAULS VALLEY — Prosecutors say they're seeking the death penalty for a Wynnewood man charged in the beating death of an 84-year-old man.

Prosecutors filed a bill of particulars for 42-year-old Martin High in the September 2011 death of Glenn Brownlee. Authorities say Brownlee was found in a pool of blood in his Wynnewood home on Sept. 29, 2011. Wynnewood police say Brownlee died from severe head trauma.

A local newspaper reports that defense attorneys are asking a judge to not allow into evidence statements that High made to police. The defense argues that High “involuntarily and unknowingly” made the statements to police.

On Monday, a judge in Garvin County scheduled a hearing for Aug. 5 on pending motions in the case. Trial is set for Sept. 9.
