(Lancaster) --  A man and a teenager are scheduled for trial in April in the sexual assault and slaying of a sixth-grade math teacher during a burglary at her Lancaster home. 

Prosecutors have said they plan to seek the death penalty if 26-year-old Thomas Moore is convicted of first-degree murder in the December 2014 death of 32-year-old Nicole Mathewson.

Moore's 17-year-old co-defendant could face life in prison if convicted in the murder of the 32-year-old.

Mathewson taught for seven years at Brownstown Elementary School in the Conestoga Valley School District.    

A spokesman for the prosecutor's office says the two will be tried together on charges including homicide and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
