LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Sentencing has been postponed for a 20-year-old Topeka man convicted of killing a teenage passenger while driving drunk.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/10aeCeL ) that Hunter Hillmer is now set to be sentenced May 17 in Shawnee County District Court. The proceeding had been scheduled for Thursday, but his new defense attorney sought the delay.

Hillmer was convicted in December of reckless second-degree murder for a March 2012 accident that killed 15-year-old Madison Naill. He was also convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated battery for injuries suffered by a second passenger.

The crash left Hillmer paralyzed below the waist. He could face up to nearly 14 years in prison.
