JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The state wants the death penalty for a man who confessed to killing a local church leader with a hammer.

Prosecutors informed the court of their intention at a pretrial hearing for 25-year-old Terrence Rashad Wright.

He is facing charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery in the death of Apostle J.H. Bowser in April 2013.

Police said Wright beat Bowser to death with a hammer at his home. Wright then drove Bowser's car to a JSO substation and confessed, according to police.

The death penalty motion will be heard on Feb. 3.
