Sentencing delayed for ex-N.O. cop who burned body

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal judge has agreed to postpone a resentencing hearing for a former New Orleans police officer who was convicted of burning the body of a man who was shot and killed by another officer following Hurricane Katrina.

Gregory McRae's July 25 sentencing was moved Wednesday to Jan. 9, 2014, at the request of his attorney, Frank DeSalvo. The lawyer argued McRae should be sentenced after the December 2013 retrial of former officer David Warren, who shot and killed 31-year-old Henry Glover outside a police substation less than a week after the 2005 storm.

U.S. District Judge Lance Africk sentenced McRae to more than 17 years in prison before an appeals court reversed one of his convictions last year and ordered him to be resentenced for his remaining convictions.
