ASHDOWN, Ark. (AP) - A urologist says man charged with killing an Ashdown couple is unlikely to have fathered a child, as prosecutors have said.

Forty-five-year-old Timothy Lamont Howard is on trial in Little River County for the 1997 deaths of Brian Day and Shannon Day and for attempted murder of the Day’s 7-month-old son. Prosecutors have said Howard killed Shannon Day because she thought she was pregnant with Howard’s child and that he killed Brian Day for money.

Dr. Patrick Somerville testified Friday that he treated Howard in 1991 and 1992 and said it’s unlikely Howard could father a child.

This is Howard’s second trial after his 1999 conviction and death sentence were overturned. Prosecutors are no longer seeking the death penalty.

The trial is to resume Monday.
