ADA, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors in Pontotoc County say they will seek the death penalty for a man accused of killing a 17-year-old Tishomingo High School student.

Scotty Laddell Brooks (pictured) is charged with first-degree murder in the December shooting death of Dale Catron at Brooks' home.

Court documents say Catron's cousin told police the two were taking a walk when they were invited into the house and Brooks asked the boys what gang they were in. The cousin says when Catron denied being in a gang he was shot by Brooks.

Trial is to begin December 3rd.

    THe manwho shot dale should burn in hell for what he done. This is a country where we are suppose to feel safe and knowing people like him are still alive makes me sick and i knew dale he was my friend, my family and i will not try and forget what happened that night and what will happen to this man. He deserves a life sentence and he should just fade away like he was meant to do.

    I see both sides of this story. I see what was and what has been done. This was a horrible act yes. But this man should not be judged by another man. Let his maker judge him accordingly.

    While people sit around their computers reading mail, crimes, porno, etc.... when we should be getting up off our butts in our communities participating as citizens to stop violent crimes and as far as gangs are concerned you must live in another state because Oklahoma doesn't have gangs. They may have some wanna bes but most man to man crimes in our state are due to an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. So back to the shoes that I placed upon your feet until you slip your feet out the door wearing my shoes and participate in your community from gunning our children down in the street. And start participating in stopping the sale of street guns. Judge not another man.

    TO:T I feel it is very easy to judge this man without walking in his shoes because I WILL NOT WALK IN HIS SHOES because to do that I will become a member of a low life scum that deals drugs to our kids and kill our young.

    Mr. C you have hit the nail on the head! As for T and E, it is time we stop slapping hands and punshing criminals for what they have done. Instead of wasting tax payers dollars on criminals living it up getting three square meals and an education. We have young individuals that can't get the same that aren't criminals. It just isn't fair!

    Dale was a great kid and it was so upsetting on the family and his friends. Even though the death penalty is more expensive than life without parole. He should die. Reforming the judicial systme is a whole other story.

    Judge not one man until you have walked in that man's shoes.
