NEW ORLEANS — The re-sentencing date has been postponed for the New Orleans police officer convicted of burning Henry Glover's body after he was fatally shot by another officer.
Gregory McRae's hearing had been set for Tuesday but U.S. District Judge Lance Africk delayed it until Aug. 15. NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/1k4qZYl ) said the reason for the delay was not immediately known.
McRae is currently in prison serving a 17-year sentence. He was one of five officers charged in the case, which involved the death of Glover four days after Hurricane Katrina made landfall and the disposal of the body.
Tuesday's hearing had been scheduled after an appeals court vacated one of McRae's four convictions and granted his bid to be re-sentenced on the remaining three.
