IDAHO FALLS -- An eastern Idaho man charged with first-degree murder in the death of a 21-year-old woman will face the death penalty.

The Post Register reports Thursday that Bonneville County Prosecutor Bruce Pickett filed the notice of intent last week against 22-year-old Adan Arroyo of Blackfoot.

Arroyo was charged earlier this year with first-degree murder and a weapons enhancement, after prosecutors said he shot 21-year-old Kristy M. Aschliman four times on Jan. 19 and left her for dead on the side of the road near Ammon.

Arroyo pleaded not guilty in March.
