GRETNA, LA (WVUE) - Joshua Every has pled not guilty to first-degree murder and armed robbery charges against him for the murder of a Raising Cane's manager in June.

Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty for Every, who they say worked at the Raising Cane's and knew the victim, Taylor Friloux.

Police say on June 29, Every and another man put a knife to an employee taking out the trash.

When Friloux walked outside, the pair is accused of forcing her to the back door of the restaurant and inside.

Surveillance video shows Every stabbing Friloux when he entered the building. Detectives say after that the two stole approximately $1,000 from the store.

As he was leaving the store, Every stopped over Friloux as she was lying on the floor and stabbed her several more times.

Friloux died soon after.

Friloux's mother says she still can't understand why her daughter had to be killed.

"I'll never see her get married, she'll never have kids and I always told her that she was going to be a great mom and that just breaks my heart, because that was stolen from me, from us," said Jamie Reavis, Friloux's mother.

Detectives say other employees inside the store the morning of the robbery recognized Every, even asking him, what he was doing.
