Death sought in case of girl in suitcase

STOCKTON, CA Melissa Huckaby has pleaded not guilty to murdering Sandra Cantu as well as to charges she drugged two other people.

The 28-year-old former Sunday school teacher showed no emotion Thursday as San Joaquin County prosecutor Thomas Testa told a court his office would seek the death penalty. Sandra's family also attended the hearing.

Also Thursday, Huckaby asked the judge for a new attorney, and possible trial dates were being discussed.
