GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) _ A new sentencing date has been set for a Great Bend man convicted of killing a 14-year-old cheerleader whose charred body was found at the asphalt plant where he worked.

Adam Longoria will be sentenced the morning of June 26. He was convicted in April of capital murder for the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt.

Barton County District Judge Hannelore Kitts had earlier delayed the scheduled June 8 sentencing, but no new date had been set until Wednesday.

Prosecutors aren't seeking the death penalty, but a capital murder conviction carries a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Alicia disappeared the weekend before she was due to start her freshman year at high school. Her remains were found three days later.
