PHOENIX (AP) - A man facing a third trial in the killings of nine people, including six monks, at a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple in 1991 is set for a court appearance.

Johnathan A. Doody, now 39, was just 17 when he was accused of participating in the August 1991 slayings at the Wat Promkunaram temple.

He was found guilty in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison, but an appeals court threw out his conviction in 2011 after finding that investigators improperly obtained a confession from him.

He was put on trial again in August, but a judge declared a mistrial Oct. 24 after jurors failed to reach a verdict.

Prosecutors plan to try him for a third time. Doody was set for a court appearance Thursday as attorneys discuss future dates.
