(KSL News) -- Mark Hacking will be arraigned on murder charges Friday in the death of his wife Lori.

He's expected to plead "not guilty", something that doesn't sit well with Lori's brother. Friday's Deseret Morning News quotes from a letter Paul Soares sent Mark in jail.

It asks him to, "save your family the grief and cost of this attorney. Just plead guilty for once. Just tell the truth. Take responsibility for your actions.... don't ask for some lenient plea bargain. Be a man."

Soares' letter goes on to say "nothing less than life is adequate for your crime."
