The announcement Friday by the Norfolk district attorney follows Amy Bishop's sentencing this week to life in prison without parole for the killings at the University of Alabama-Huntsville in February 2010. In a statement, the office said the life sentence they would seek in the 1986 killing of 18-year-old Seth Bishop was identical to the punishment she received in Alabama, so there was no need to move forward.
