(KUTV) — The state of Utah will seek the death penalty against Brenda Emile and Miller Eric Costello, who were charged last July with the murder of their 3-year-old daughter.

The documents were filed Tuesday.

The parents were charged with aggravated murder in July of 2017.

Prosecutors have alleged previously that Emile and Costello killed Angelina Costello from severe child abuse.

They are both accused of putting makeup on the little girl in an effort to conceal her injuries.

Both are being held in the Weber County Jail.
