Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of life in prison for the Russellville doctor convicted of bombing the chief of the Arkansas Medical Board and nearly killing him.

Randeep Mann is to be sentenced Monday afternoon in federal court in Little Rock along with his wife, Sangeeta Mann, who was convicted of obstructing justice.

Mann was convicted last summer in the bombing of Dr. Trent Pierce at his West Memphis home. The board that Pierce led had yanked Mann’s license to prescribe narcotics after a number of overdose deaths.

Defense lawyers argue that Mann should get a lesser sentence because the grenade that blew up in Pierce’s driveway was intended only to scare or injure. Prosecutors dismiss that argument and cite Pierce’s grave injuries. Prosecutors also want jail for Sangeeta Mann.
