WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against a woman accused of dressing up like a clown in 1990 and fatally shooting the wife of her future husband.
    
State Attorney Dave Aronberg issued a statement Wednesday saying he will seek the death penalty against 54-year-old Sheila Keen Warren, who was ordered held without bond at a court hearing.
    
She was extradited Tuesday from Abingdon, Virginia, where she lived with her husband Michael Warren for years.
    
Sheila Warren was arrested last month. Officials say Marlene Warren was shot in the face by a clown delivering carnations and balloons. Investigators say a new DNA testing gave them what they needed to make an arrest.
    
Attorney Richard Lubin said Sheila Warren "vehemently denies" the killing.
