Albany - - Prosecutors will seek the death penalty in the revenge killing of a Colquitt County family.  Last month, a grand jury indicted a drug offender charged with killing an informant and his family, including a three-year-old boy.

Now, Lowndes County District Attorney David Miller is seeking the death penalty for 45- year-old Jerry Thompson. Thompson is charged in a 25-count indictment for the five murders. The indictment includes aggravating circumstances.

Twenty-five-year old Jaime Resendez, his wife, son, mother-in-law, and housekeeper were executed in their home in November 2004.

Twenty-year-old Wilma Stover was also arrested in the crimes but has not yet been indicted.

Thompson is serving a 27-year sentence on drug charges.
