BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have formally filed notice that they will again seek the death penalty against a Vermont man facing a retrial in the 2000 killing of a woman who was abducted when she arrived for work at a Rutland supermarket and later killed.

In an amended notice of intent to seek the death penalty against Donald Fell filed Tuesday in federal court, prosecutors say that Terry King of North Clarendon was killed during a kidnapping.

Fell was convicted of killing King in 2005 and sentenced to death, but his conviction was overturned. He is now facing a retrial in September 2016.

A hearing in Fell’s case is scheduled for Friday in federal court in Burlington.
