WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A judge has set for resentencing the case of two Texas brothers who ran a Kansas hunting camp where hunters paid thousands of dollars to illegally shoot deer.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Tuesday set an Aug. 28 resentencing for James and Marlin Butler after an appeals court overturned their prison terms.

Belot told attorneys he would hear testimony at the resentencing about the fair market price of wild deer parts.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said last year that the district court made a mistake in 2011 in calculating sentences based on the full price of a guided hunt, rather than the actual value of the animals.

The Butlers, of Martinsville, Texas, ran Camp Lone Star near Coldwater, Kan.
