Sentencing delayed for man convicted in killing
The sentencing of a 42-year-old Meridian man convicted of second-degree murder has been postponed.
The Idaho Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/1004tpb) that 4th District Judge Michael McLaughlin delayed Rob Hall's sentencing from Thursday to March 21 so that prosecutors can have more time examining a mental health evaluation.
The evaluation found Hall is suffering from depression and would be a low risk of reoffending if released back into society.
Hall was convicted Oct. 25 in the March 2011 shooting death of his wife's lover in a drugstore parking lot.
Hall's attorneys say the handgun fell out of Hall's sweat shirt pocket during a struggle with Emmett Corrigan. The attorneys say Hall has no memory of firing a gun, but had he fired it would have been in self-defense.
