LITTLE ROCK — An Oklahoma man awaiting a federal death sentence for killing an Arkansas family is to have a hearing in his attempt to get a new sentencing phase of his trial.

Danny Lee was convicted in the 1996 deaths of the Mueller family in Pope County. Lee and an accomplice, Chevie Kehoe, robbed the family of guns and cash as part of a scheme to establish a white supremacist nation in the Pacific Northwest.

Kehoe drew a life sentence, and Lee is to try to have his death sentence thrown out at a Friday hearing in federal court in Little Rock.

Lee claims that jurors were improperly shown results of a test that scored him as a psychopath and a danger in prison. Lee says the test has since been discredited.
