Judge rules for death penalty in Pleau case

Posted: Updated:

The death penalty will stand as a possible punishment in the case of accused killer Jason Pleau.

A federal judge on Monday rejected Pleau's challenges to the constitutionality of the federal death penalty law.

Rhode Island does not authorize capital punishment.

Authorities said Pleau shot and killed gas station manager David Main outside a Woonsocket bank in 2010.
