A Kansas man convicted of fatally shooting his 9-year-old stepbrother will not be sentenced until December.
Eighteen-year-old Ryan Velez was scheduled to be sentenced Monday for second-degree murder in the 2010 death of Kaden Harper at the family’s home near Assaria.
Sentencing was rescheduled for Dec. 1 after his attorney, Mitch Christians, said he needed more time to review records for Velez from Larned State Hospital.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1wtLVvz ) prosecutors say Velez shot his stepbrother while they were arguing about doing chores. He has at Larned for treatment since pleading guilty.
