NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

The Hamilton County Prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for the suspect in the 2013 murder a then 20-year-old woman.

Jaleel Markeith Smith-Riley, 22, shot Porshia Brooks during a robbery in Norwood in Nov. 2013, Prosecutor Joe Deters said. He was arrested by Norwood police earlier this month and is being held on a $5 million bond at the Hamilton County jail. 

Deters indicted Smith-Riley  on aggravated murder, murder, attempted murder, two counts of felonious assault and aggravated robbery. If convicted of all charges, he faces the death penalty.

Aron Martin was also shot in the head that night and survived.  

Surveillance video released after the shooting showed three potential suspects walking towards the scene of the double shooting.

Martin called the act senseless.

“At what point you just decide OK I'm going out and take someone's life without thinking about OK their loved ones are going to miss them,” questioned Martin. 

Norwood Police Lt. Ronald Murphy says a second suspect is currently incarcerated in an out-of-state jail with pending charges and Murphy says both suspects admitted involvement in the crime.

The third suspect in the case is deceased.

Police have not released the identities of the other two suspects.
