LINCOLN, Nebraska — A judge has delayed sentencing of a man convicted in a Lincoln slaying so the man's lawyer can check an informant's tip that someone else may have been the shooter.
In July 20-year-old Joshua Carr pleaded no contest and was convicted of manslaughter and two other charges in the Aug. 30 killing of Maurice Williams.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1NqbNC2 ) that Carr's attorney, Sarah Newell, says the informant told police a man another man had come to his home covered in blood and said he shot Williams.
On Thursday Judge Steven Burns delayed the sentencing until Sept. 8.
