LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - A woman on death row in Pennsylvania will be getting a new sentencing hearing but it won’t be anytime soon.

The Lebanon Daily News (bit.ly/1sm47Sl) said a judge on Monday requested an October scheduling hearing in the case of Carolyn King.

King and her co-conspirator, Bradley Martin, were sentenced to death in 1994 for killing 74-year-old florist Guy Goodman in his Palmyra home.

The state Supreme Court denied new trials but ordered new sentencing hearings.

Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold is continuing to pursue the death penalty in both cases.

Goodman’s murder on Sept. 17, 1993, was the start of a 12-state flight that included a kidnapping and slaying of a 59-year-old woman in Bismarck, North Dakota, and ended with the couple’s arrest three weeks later in Yuma, Arizona.
