Murder Suspect's Sentencing Delayed Again

A convicted killer will once again wait to learn his sentence.

A judge has delayed sentencing for Antwan Peppers, 36, on first-degree murder and attempted murder charges until September 3.

Peppers was supposed to be sentenced Wednesday, June 11 but is delayed by the state so prosecutors have time to consider his previous convictions.

Peppers was convicted in March 2008 for the July 2006 shooting death of Jermaine Cunningham.

Cunningham and Terrell Hayes-Osby were shot in a car outside Terry's Bar and Grill, Topeka. That shooting happened 12 hours after a separate shooting that Hayes-Osby pleaded guilty to.

Shawnee County District Attorney Robert Hecht says the shooting may have been gang-related and in retaliation for that first shooting.

Hayes-Osby testified against Peppers as part of a plea deal.
