FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The man who fatally shot a Utah sheriff's deputy in 2010 is expected to learn his punishment Tuesday.

Scott Curley is facing up to life in prison for killing Kane County Deputy Brian Harris with an assault rifle along the Arizona-Utah border. He also pleaded guilty to stealing the rifle from his childhood friend, holding a school custodian at gunpoint and a burglary charge.

Coconino County Superior Court Judge Mark Moran heard two days of testimony during a sentencing hearing last month.

Harris' family has asked for a sentence that ensures Curley cannot kill again.

Curley's family pleaded for help in treating his alcohol addiction and mental illness.

Curley wrote to the Arizona Daily Sun on Nov. 7, saying he had to kill because of the war between good and evil.
