HOUSTON (AP) — Attorneys for a Houston-area former high school coach convicted of killing his pregnant wife will be back in court to argue for a chance to present new evidence they say shows their client is innocent.

David Temple was sentenced to life in prison for the 1999 shooting death of his wife. Prosecutors accused him of staging the crime to look like a burglary and killing his wife because he was having an affair with another woman, whom he later married.

An appeal is pending before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

A hearing before state District Judge David Mendoza is scheduled for Monday in Houston on whether Temple’s attorneys will be able to present the new evidence, which they say are statements that point to another person as the killer.
