Sentencing Delayed for Kansan Teen



SALINA, Kan.  -  A Kansas teen be sentenced in September for the shooting death of his young stepbrother at their home.

Ryan Velez,18, was scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday for second-degree murder after he shot Kaden Harper, 9, in June 2010. The sentencing was delayed at the request of Velez's attorney, who said he needed more time to review records from Larned State Hospital.

Velez has been at Larned since 2011 after pleading guilty to unintentional but reckless second-degree murder. He was 14 when he shot Kaden at their rural Assaria home. Prosecutors say the boys were arguing over doing chores.

Velez will now be sentenced on Sept. 22.
