Tift County    --     Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for two men charged with murdering six Mexican immigrants last year.     

Jamie Underwood and Stacey Bernard Sims are accused of using guns and baseball bats during a string of home invasions at trailer parks in Tifton.  They were indicted for murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, burglary and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.  

They are accused of killing six men and injuring at least six others on September 30th of last year.      

Two women, Jennifer Lafay Wilson and Emma Jean Powell, were indicted on the same charges as Underwood and Sims.  

They will not face the death penalty according the Tift county district attorney.   He says their role was basically driving the men from place to place.
