Utah court looking for new lawyers for newlyweds accused of beating 4-year-old boy to death

FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — A Utah court is looking for lawyers qualified to take a possible death penalty case for the newlyweds charged with beating the woman's 4-year-old boy to death.

Nathanael and Stephanie Sloop made separate appearances in 2nd District Court on Friday.

They were expecting to get new public defenders, but Judge David Connors has yet to find any lawyers to take what promises to be a time-consuming aggravated murder case.

The judge set another hearing for June 11.

The Sloops are being held without bail in the death of Stephanie Sloop's son, Ethan Stacy. The boy's body was recovered from a shallow grave in the Utah mountains May 11. That was 10 days after he arrived in Utah for a summer visit with his mother and stepfather.
