Prosecutors in Arizona were expected to announce Tuesday whether a man convicted of killing nine people at a Buddhist temple will be retried.
The decision will come after the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to overturn a decision that threw out his confession.
Jerry Cobb, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, says prosecutors were in meetings Tuesday to discuss whether they will refile charges against Jonathan Doody in the 1991 killings and try the case anew.
Doody was convicted of the slayings of six priests, a nun and two helpers during a robbery at the Wat Promkunaram temple west of Phoenix.
He was sentenced to 281 years in prison.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found Doody's Miranda warnings were inadequate and threw out the conviction.
