(KSL News) -- A jury will now decide the fate of a man who killed a six-year-old girl by setting a home on fire.

Mark Ott is accused of entering his ex-wife's home, stabbing her boyfriend and setting the home on fire, killing the girl in 2002.

Ott pleaded guilty to homicide earlier last month, which spared him from the death penalty.

Now, the jury will decide if his life sentence will be with or without the possibility of parole.
