SEOUL -- Prosecutors in South Korea are seeking the death penalty for a man convicted of killing 10 women, including his wife and mother-in-law.

Kang Ho-sun admitted killing eight women but denied responsibility for a fire that claimed the lives of his wife and her mother, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday.

In requesting the death penalty for Kang, the prosecutor said Kang should be permanently isolated from society.

The prosecution also told a sentencing hearing Wednesday that Kang hasn't shown any remorse for his crimes.
