TOWSON, Md. (AP) - A man who killed his parents and two brothers when he was 15 is due in court on a request for a sentence modification.

Prosecutors say a hearing will be conducted Friday on the request by 21-year-old Nicholas Browning’s lawyer. The request had been filed in 2009, when Browning was sentenced to four life terms.

Browning pleaded guilty to four counts of murder in the February 2008 slayings of his parents, John and Tamara, and his brothers, 14-year-old Gregory and 11-year-old Benjamin. Prosecutors say Browning shot the four as they slept, spent the night with friends, then returned the next day, pretending to discover his family dead.

Baltimore County Circuit Judge Thomas J. Bollinger, who sentenced Browning, will hold the hearing on the motion for modification of sentence.
