SPOKANE, Wash. - The family of Doug Carlile has notified KHQ that the man suspected of killing Doug will not face the death penalty if he is convicted. 

The family was notified by prosecutors on Wednesday that if Timothy Suckow is convicted for the murder of Doug Carlile, the death penalty will not be pursued. 

In December 2013, Doug Carlile was murdered in his home on the South Hill. After weeks of investigation, police arrested Timothy Suckow for the murder. Detectives believe Suckow was hired to kill Carlile by Carlile's business associate, James Henrikson, however Suckow is the only person who has been arrested for Carlile's murder.

Henrikson is facing weapons charges in North Dakota. 

Suckow is scheduled for a motion hearing in a Spokane courtroom on Thursday.
