EVERETT, Wash. -

Attorneys representing at 20-year-old man accused of fatally shooting three former classmates at a house party in suburban Seattle plan to ask a judge for more time to compile information to convince prosecutors not to seek the death penalty.

The Daily Herald reports that Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Roe has given the defense team until Friday to provide him with information to take under considering as he weighs whether to pursue Allen Ivanov's execution.

Roe says he will announce his decision by mid-December.

Ivanov has been charged with three counts of aggravated murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in connection to the July 30 shooting deaths of Anna Bui, of Everett, Jordan Ebner, of Lake Stevens, and Jacob Long, of Everett.
