SLEEPOVER FIRE
Judge agrees to postpone sentencing in Cleveland arson fire that killed 9 people in 2005

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 6:25 AM EDT
CLEVELAND


Sentencing has been postponed for a man twice convicted of killing a woman and eight children at a sleepover in Cleveland's deadliest arson fire.

Sentencing for Antun Lewis had been scheduled for Tuesday. But U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. on Friday granted a defense motion to delay it.

In his order, Oliver acknowledged that prosecutors filed a memorandum late on Thursday raising "significant sentencing issues," so he agreed to postpone sentencing to give Lewis' attorney more time to prepare.

The fire killed 33-year-old Medeia Carter, four of her children and four other youngsters attending a birthday sleepover party on May 21, 2005.

The judge on Thursday denied a motion seeking dismissal of the arson charge, and a request for another trial.
