DENVER (AP) - Attorneys for a man accused of shoving his second wife off a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park say details of his first wife’s death should be barred from his trial.

Harold Henthorn is set to return to federal court in Denver Monday for a two-day hearing to decide whether that case and other evidence is admissible when his murder trial starts in September.

Prosecutors say Henthorn pushed his wife, Toni Henthorn, to her death during a scenic hike in September 2012. Investigators say he could not explain why he had a park map with an “X” drawn at the spot where she fell.

Henthorn’s attorneys also want a judge to keep prosecutors from discussing a situation in which Toni was struck by a falling beam at their cabin.
