COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

The Colquitt County Manager is preparing for what could be a death penalty case against Jeffrey Peacock.

He is accused of killing his five friends and burning down their house.

The judge in the case wrote a letter explaining the high costs of pursuing a death penalty case. 

In the letter Judge McDaniel says that it's "his understanding the case is expected to involve the death penalty."

He said he anticipates it impacting 2018, 2019, and possibly 2020 budgets.

McDaniel suggested putting a specific line in for the costs if this does in fact become a death penalty case.

District Attorney Brad Shealy is prosecuting the case but has not released a decision on how they will try the case.
