GLENDALE HEIGHTS --
Prosecutors say they will not drop their pursuit of the death penalty in the case of a Glendale Heights father accused of killing his sons by setting them on fire. An attorney for Kaushik Patel says the father had offered to plead guilty in exchange for a prison sentence.
Patel is accused of covering his two sons in gasoline and then setting them on fire in the bathroom of their home in November of last year.
Seven-year-old Vish and 4-year-old Om later died of their injuries.
Patel's trial is scheduled to begin April 21.
