SALT LAKE CITY — Federal prosecutors say a change of plea hearing is set for a pest extermination company and one of its former employees suspected in the misapplication of a pesticide that may have contributed to the deaths of two young girls.
Bugman Pest and Lawn Inc., and Coleman Nocks are set to appear in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court on Tuesday.
Prosecutors would not discuss the terms of the proposed plea agreements ahead of the hearing.
Messages left for attorneys representing Bugman Pest and Nocks were not returned Monday.
Company president Ray Wilson and Nocks have each pleaded not guilty to three counts of unlawful use of a registered pesticide.
If convicted, the company faces only a fine. Nocks, however, faces a three year prison term.
