Erik Ohlson, the Jackson man who pleaded guilty to killing Jennifer Nalley, was set to argue his reasoning for withdrawing his plea in court today but decided not to.
The 42-year-old accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend had pleaded guilty to murder and manslaughter in February, abut a week after he more or less admitted to killing Nalley in jailhouse phone calls.
On April 17, he filed a motion to withdraw that guilty plea.
The court was set to hear arguments today but on Wednesday night Ohlson's attorneys filed to withdraw his motion to withdraw his plea.
Ohlson has been in custody in the Madison County (Idaho) Jail since his July 2016 arrest after Nalley was shot dead at her Teton Valley, Idaho, cabin.
The court will now proceed to Ohlson's previously scheduled May 9 sentencing, prosecutor Billie Siddoway said.
