SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Caddo district judge has postponed formal sentencing for a man convicted of killing a pregnant teen.
Twenty-year-old LaMondre Tucker was convicted in March of killing his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, Tavia Sills. The jury voted to recommend a death sentence.
Judge Ramona Emanuel on Thursday postponed the sentencing until after rulings are made on several motions. The Times of Shreveport said Emanuel set June 29 for more proceedings.
Prosecutors said Tucker killed Sills because she told him she was pregnant with his child. DNA testing later determined Tucker wasn't the father of the victim's unborn baby.
