POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) _ March court dates have been set for two
convicted teen killers from eastern Idaho seeking to have their
life sentences reduced.

Torey Adamcik goes before Sixth District Judge Peter D.
McDermott on March 10th on a Rule 35 motion that asks for a more
lenient sentence.

Brian Draper has a similar hearing on March 24th.

Adamcik and Draper were convicted last year in separate trials
of killing 16-year-old Cassie Jo Stoddart.

Both received life sentences for first-degree murder and 30
years-to-life for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in
Stoddart's slaying.

They were arrested September 27th, 2006, five days after
investigators say Stoddart was stabbed as many as 30 times while
housesitting for relatives in northeast Bannock County.

All three were 16-year-old juniors at Pocatello High School at
the time.
