MARSHALL COUNTY, OK -- A man sentenced to life in prison who had filed a motion to withdraw his plea of no contest decided not to withdraw that plea Wednesday.

Joshua Scott is charged with killing Chad Page, Ashleigh Lindsey and her unborn baby in 2012.

He was sentenced to life in prison in December and the Marshall County Court Clerk's office says he filed a motion to withdraw his plea of no contest. That would allow him to receive a jury trial where if convicted he could face the death penalty.

At a hearing Wednesday, Scott decided not to withdraw his plea.

The Marshall County Court Clerk's office says Scott's life sentence stands.
