Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for a Louisville man charged with killing two members of a homeowners association over a long-running property dispute.

Mahmoud Yousef Hindi, a former physician, is facing two counts of murder and seven counts of wanton endangerment in the shootings at an eastern Louisville church. Prosecutors will seek execution if Hindi is convicted on the murder charges.

Hindi, 55, told police he was frustrated over battles with the association and went to the Sept. 6 meeting with a loaded gun. Police say he shot 73-year-old David Merritt and 69-year-old Marvin Fisher, two association members.

Hindi says he lived at the home owned by his children. He has been assigned a public defender, Mike Lemke, who declined to comment on Friday after a hearing.
