Court records say prosecutors will seek the death penalty if a northwest Missouri man is convicted of killing four members of his family.

A June 1 hearing is scheduled in Platte County Circuit Court in the case against 25-year-old Grayden Lane Denham.

Denham is accused of fatally shooting his grandparents, his sister and her 3-month-old son in February. Their bodies were found outside a burning home near Edgerton.

He has pleaded not guilty and is being held in Platte County Detention Center. Bond is set at $4 million.

Denham was arrested in Seligman, AZ where police said he was walking around naked. He is also charged with arson and animal abuse for shooting a dog.

Details of events preceding the shooting and fire haven't been released.
