SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The deadline for filing motions in the Mark Hacking murder trial has come and gone, and the trial appears on track for its scheduled start.

Hacking attorney Gil Athay says he didn't file any motions before the December 30th deadline to challenge search warrants or anything else that would hold up the case.

A week-long trial is scheduled to begin April 18th.

The 28-year-old Hacking is charged with first-degree felony murder for allegedly shooting his 27-year-old wife, Lori, while she slept in July.

He's also charged with obstructing justice for allegedly disposing of his wife's body and the alleged murder weapon.
