GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas judge has delayed the sentencing of a Great Bend man convicted of killing a 14-year-old cheerleader whose charred body was found at the asphalt plant where he worked.

No new sentencing date has been set for 38-year-old Adam Longoria. A jury found him guilty in April of guilty of capital murder for the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt.

Sentencing had been scheduled for June 8, but Barton County District Judge Hannelore Kitts on Tuesday delayed it. There was no explanation in court records.

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.
