SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Convicted killer Mark Hofmann is expected to return to the Utah State Prison today after spending three days in the hospital.

Utah Department of Corrections spokesman Jack Ford says Hofmann was taken to the hospital on Tuesday for a malady he can't discuss because inmates' medical information is private.

Fifty-year-old Hofmann is serving the rest of his life in prison for a pair of bombings in Salt Lake County in October 1985. The bombings killed Steve Christensen and Kathy Sheets.

A third bomb exploded, injuring Hofmann. He was eventually convicted of the two murders and sentenced to five years to life in prison in 1987. However, the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole decided to keep him in prison for the rest of his life.
