HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty for a man who fatally shot a family of six children and two parents at a Houston home.

The Houston Chronicle reports that 54-year-old David Conley was charged with capital murder in the shooting of his estranged ex-girlfriend, her husband and six children, including his own son, at her family’s home in northwest Harris County.

All of the victims were shot in the head. Conley’s trial is being held this week at the Harris County Criminal Court.

He faces life without parole if convicted by a jury.
