The man convicted of killing Monroe teen Phylicia Barnes is expected to be sentenced in Baltimore Wednesday.
Michael Johnson faces up to 30 years in prison. A jury spent three days deliberating in early February and convicted Johnson of second degree murder.
Prosecutors say he raped and strangled Barnes in December 2010 then dumped her body in the Susquehanna River in Maryland.
Johnson's lawyers filed a motion for a new trial last month. WBTV has not learned of any new developments since then.
At the time of the court filing, Attorney Russell Neverdon said prosecutors improperly tried to bolster the credibility of a witness who testified that Johnson asked him for help disposing of Barnes' body.
Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein says the state would respond to the motion at the appropriate time.
