If for any reason a sentence of death has not been executed and remains in force,
the court in which sentence was pronounced, on application of the district attorney,
shall, if no legal reason exists for not proceeding with the execution of the sentence,
enter an order setting a new date for the execution of the sentence, which shall not
be less than thirty (30) days from the date of the order. The court may order the prisoner to be brought before it or, if the prisoner is
at large, issue a warrant for the prisoner's arrest. The court shall also issue a new warrant directed to the director of the department
of corrections to carry out the execution of the sentence as provided by W.S. 7-13-906.
