Farmington •Defense and prosecutors continue to discuss a possible plea deal in the case of Nathan Sloop, 33, accused of aggravated murder in connection with the 2010 death of his stepson, Ethan Stacy.
Sloop, 33, appeared Tuesday in 2nd District Court, where Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings said "significant progress" is being made in the case and that he expects things to move quickly in months ahead.
Sloop's next court date is Dec. 11. Sloop's attorney, Richard Mauro, said both sides have engaged in plea talks, but no deal has been reached. He declined to elaborate on other legal issues that need to be addressed between now and December.
