A re-sentencing hearing has been canceled for a doctor convicted in the bombing that nearly killed the head of the Arkansas State Medical Board.

Lawyers for Randeep Mann say a judge canceled the hearing scheduled for Monday. The hearing has not been rescheduled.

In December, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new sentencing for Mann, who was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the 2009 bombing at the home of Dr. Trent Pierce.

The appeals court affirmed Mann's conviction of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, but said Mann shouldn't have received a sentencing enhancement based on allegations that he ordered the assault of an inmate.

Mann is asking the federal appeals court to rehear his appeal.
