TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A man convicted of killing a 6-year-old Tucson girl will find out next month if he will get another life prison sentence.

An April 10 sentencing date for Christopher Clements was set Monday after a status hearing in Pima County Superior Court.

Last month, the 42-year-old Clements was found guilty of first-degree murder, kidnapping and burglary in the death of Isabel Celis, who vanished from her parents’ home in 2012.

The conviction came in a retrial.

Clements already is serving a life prison sentence for the 2014 killing of 13-year-old Maribel Gonzalez, who disappeared while walking to a friend’s house.

Gonzalez’s body was found days later in a remote area north of Tucson. Celis’ remains were discovered years later in the same general area.

Clements was arrested in 2018 in the deaths of the two girls.

He was sentenced to a life prison term in 2022 for kidnapping and killing Gonzalez.
