N. Idaho man's sentencing for murder delayed




SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) _ The sentencing of a northern Idaho man
convicted of second-degree murder in a fatal campground shooting
has been postponed until next month.

A public defender for James Anderson requested the delay in 1st
District Court earlier this week, saying information the
prosecution wants to present about a 2002 domestic violence charge
in Texas is irrelevant to the Idaho case.

The sentencing hearing was rescheduled for Feb. 12.

A Bonner County jury found Anderson guilty of shooting
30-year-old Elvin Holt during a November 2008 altercation at a
recreational vehicle campground in the small town of Sagle.
