State prosecutors intend to seek the death penalty for a man accused of shooting and killing a woman and her daughter in West Palm Beach late last year. 

Police said Joseph shot 36-year-old Kaladda Crowell and 11-year-old Kyra Inglett on Dec. 28 . Joseph was caught after several days on the run. 

He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and could be sentenced to death if found guilty.

Prosecutors call their deaths especially heinous, atrocious and cruel.

Joseph was previously convicted of battery on a child in December 2014. He was on probation, which was set to expire on Nov. 4, 2018, at the time of the homicides.

Joseph is expected to appear in court in May.
