WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A judge has agreed to delay sentencing for a Canadian man who was found in Michigan with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet.

Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill, of Bewdley, Ontario, had been scheduled to appear Wednesday in federal court in Wichita on a charge of traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. But U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten granted on Monday a delay because of a scheduling conflict. The sentencing is now set for May 8.

The 21-year-old man pleaded guilty in February under a deal with that will lock him up for eight years, if the judge accepts it.

Authorities say McGill traveled last year to El Dorado to meet the girl. They were found a few days later near Potterville, Mich.
