Lawyers will be back in Boston Federal Court on Tuesday in the case of convicted killer Gary Lee Sampson.
Sampson, a drifter who grew up in Abington, faces a second trial on whether he should be executed.
Sampson killed two men in Massachusetts and was sentenced to death.
He also pleaded guilty to separate state charges for killing a man in New Hampshire during the same weeklong crime spree in 2001.
Sampson’s sentence was tossed out three years ago in a ruling that was upheld by an appeals court.
Prosecutors will ask for a trial date at a status hearing tomorrow.
Sampson carjacked and killed Jonathan Rizzo of Kingston and Philip McCloskey of Taunton.
He fled to New Hampshire, where he killed Robert Whitney, a former Concord city councilor from Concord.
Sampson is the first person sentenced to death in Massachusetts under the federal death penalty law.
