FLAGSTAFF - A sentencing hearing for a man who pleaded guilty to killing a Utah sheriff's deputy along the Arizona-Utah border in 2010 continues Friday.
Scott Curley faces up to life in prison in the shooting death of Kane County Deputy Brian Harris.
Judge Mark Moran in Arizona also will sentence him on charges of assault, theft and burglary, but the punishment won't come down immediately. Moran says he needs time to review the evidence and testimony from the families of Harris and Curley.
The prosecution and defense sparred Thursday over whether Curley's actions were those of a man who knew exactly what he was doing and tried to cover his tracks or the result of delusional beliefs.
Curley's attorneys have asked the judge to allow him to become parole-eligible after 25 years.
