An Alabama couple facing murder, kidnapping, and robbery charges across multiple states is now facing the death penalty.

Authorities say the couple traveled to Birmingham where they kidnapped and murdered a woman in December 2019.

Police say they shot and killed three people in Bethalto Illinois the next day, and they are suspected of committed crimes in Tennessee before being caught in Missouri.
