The man convicted of shooting a Coeur d'Alene pastor six times in the back in March of 2016 is in court Monday for a sentencing hearing. Kyle Odom, a former Marine, faces up to 25 years in prison for shooting Pastor Tim Remmington outside Altar Church on March 6, 2016.

Remington survived being shot six times. One of the bullets became lodged near his brain, while others hit him in the back, shoulder and pelvis.

Odom went on the run from police and sent a manifesto to KHQ before he was arrested in Washington, D.C. where he was caught throwing items over the White House fence.

In July, Odom pleaded guilty to felony aggravated battery with a felony firearm enhancement as part of a plea agreement to keep his sentence at not more than 25 years.

The sentencing hearing was scheduled for Monday afternoon.
