TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The penalty phase in a Topeka murder trial has been delayed several months.
Last month, 25-year-old Troy Robinson was convicted of first-degree murder and aggravated burglary in the stabbing death of Oma Bennet in her apartment.
Sentencing had been originally set for Monday, but a Shawnee Co. District Court judge agreed to a defense request to delay it until November 3rd.
However, the judge denied Robinson's objection to having a jury consider a Hard 50 sentence along with a request to convene a new jury for the penalty phase.
