FARMINGTON -- Convicted murderer Mark Anthony Ott will be back in court April 19.
A hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. before 2nd District Court Judge Michael Allphin, said Nancy Volmer, spokeswoman for the Administrative Office of the Courts.
Ott, 46, pleaded guilty to aggravated murder in the death of 6-year-old Lacey Paige Lawrence. She died Sept. 1, 2002, in a house fire that Ott started at the home of his estranged wife, Donna Ott.
A 12-member jury on April 2, 2004, spent seven hours deliberating Ott's sentence following a week of testimony from those affected by the crime.
In January, the Utah Supreme Court overturned Ott's sentence of life without parole and sent it back to district court for a new sentencing hearing.
