ODESSA - He's accused of killing three Odessa police officers. On Friday, Larry Neil White found out, he'll be going to trial in April.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Larry Neil White, that's the word from District Attorney Bobby Bland.

On Friday, White had a hearing to argue that he was not healthy enough to stand trial, because of his cancer.

But Bland tells NewsWest 9, there was enough evidence during the hearing to determine white is doing physically better.

White trial has been scheduled for April.

You'll remember white is accused of murdering three Odessa Police officers back in September 2007.

Odessa Police say three of their officers were responding to a domestic dispute when white shot the officers during a standoff.

White has been diagnosed with cancer.

He is seeking treatment, and his defense had argued he wouldn't be healthy enough to endure that trial, but the judge in the case ruled that White could stand trial.

His date has been set for sometime in April.
