A convicted killer will wait more than a month longer to learn his sentence.

A judge delayed Antwan Peppers sentencing on pre-meditated first degree murder and attempted murder charges from Wednesday to June 11th. It's so Peppers' attorney could file sentencing motions.

The 36-year-old was convicted last month 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 in downtown Topeka 12 hours after a fatal shooting 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.
