METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

A judge denied a motion for a new trial for the man convicted of shooting and killing a Metairie father and son.

Last year a jury convicted Dexter Allen on two counts of second-degree murder and 19 counts of simple burglary.

Jurors found Allen guilty of committing 19 car burglaries in a Metairie neighborhood before walking into a home and killing David and Nicholas Pence.

Allen's attorney filed a writ with the Louisiana Supreme Court to delay sentencing as he seeks money to investigate Allen's background before the judge makes a decision. The Louisiana Supreme Court has not yet ruled on the writ. 

Sentencing for Allen is now set for Monday. He faces life in prison.
