FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A Fort Wayne man facing the death penalty will possibly get a new sentence.

A federal appeals court has ordered a new sentencing hearing for 34-year-old Joseph Corcoran, saying a trial court judge improperly considered certain factors in the case.

A new sentencing hearing must be held in Allen County in the next 120 days.

Corcoran was convicted of killing 4 people, including his brother in 1997.
