Stephanie Sloop stands with her attorney, Mary Corporon, during a hearing at Davis County Justice Center on Friday, Oct. 22, 2010 in Farmington, Utah. Prosecutors said they don't plan to force a couple to testify against each other in the beating death of a 4-year-old boy whose disfigured body was found buried in the northern Utah mountains. Nathanael and Stephanie Sloop, will be tried separately for aggravated murder, desecration of a body, obstruction of justice and child abuse. Ethan Stacy died in May after what prosecutors say was days of abuse at a Layton apartment. His body was mutilated in a crude effort to conceal his identity, and prosecutors have said they are likely to seek the death penalty for both defendants. less
