WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A judge is holding a final case review in the prosecution of a man charged in a 2007 killing at a Newark-area mobile home park.

Wednesday’s court hearing involves murder charges against Jason Slaughter in the death of 22-year-old Christopher Masters.

Slaughter was found outside Masters’ home with a gunshot wound but was never charged. He told police he had been shot in a home invasion.

But Georgia police contacted Delaware authorities in 2010 after charging Slaughter and his wife in a fatal shooting in that state, for which they both were later convicted of murder. Investigators subsequently found that Slaughter was the beneficiary of life insurance policies on both the Georgia and Delaware shooting victims.

Slaughter, whose trial begins Jan. 24, was sentenced to life in prison in Georgia.
