TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A man convicted of attacking employees of WIBW-TV in Topeka will not be sentenced until February.

Forty-nine-year-old Ray Anthony Miles was scheduled to be sentenced Thursday for several convictions arising from a confrontation at the station last May.

But sentencing was delayed until Feb. 27 after Miles objected to having two convictions from Arkansas included on his criminal history. The convictions for making a terroristic threat and third-degree battery would make him eligible for longer sentences in the Topeka case.

Miles attacked the station's employees after they told him they would not report on a problem he was having with the Department of Veterans Affairs. He punched, kicked and stabbed employees before they were able to take a knife away and subdue him.
