July 1, 2014- A man who pleaded guilty to killing a young girl is scheduled to appear in court today.

Scott Schroat pleaded guilty to choking and stabbing Lila Ebright, 5, and hiding her body in 1992.
Since then, he has been serving a life sentence behind bars for the crime.
A supreme court decision would allow anyone under the age of 18 at the time of the crime to appeal for a change in sentence.

Schroat is set appear in Judge Shad Connelly's courtroom at 10a.m. for his hearing.
