Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for two men in jail accused of killing a Boynton Beach man.

Evans Sineace appeared in court for a brief hearing Tuesday morning. Co-defendant Miguel Figueroa was too sick for deputies to transfer him from the jail to the courthouse.


Boynton Beach police arrested both men in April of last year. They face murder charges in the death of Tomas Pedro. Investigators believe the pair robbed and killed Pedro at Pence Park.

Lawyers don’t expect the case to go to trial until next year. A judge set a follow-up hearing in the case for June.
