CLEVELAND — A 19-year-old man accused of killing an undercover Cleveland detective and his informant has been re-indicted on charges and could now face the death penalty if convicted.
A grand jury in Cleveland late last week added capital murder specifications against David McDaniel.
He is charged with in the slayings of 53-year-old Detective James Skernivitz and 50-year-old informant Scott Dingess in September.
Authorities say McDaniel and two juvenile suspects approached Skernivitz’s unmarked car and fired rounds that killed the two men as they prepared for a drug operation.
Authorities say the three intended to rob the victims.
Defense attorney Fernando Mack declined comment Tuesday.
