Prosecutors have opposed a motion seeking to delay the sentence for a man convicted of attempted murder in a dispute over loud music until after he's tried for fatally shooting a teenager in the incident.
A Florida man intended to kill a teen outside a convenience store after an argument over loud music, even though the 17-year-old posed no threat, prosecutors said Thursday during opening statements of the man's murder trial.
A jury began deliberating George Zimmerman's fate Friday after hearing dueling portraits of the neighborhood watch captain: a wannabe cop who took the law into his own hands or a well-meaning volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin because he feared for his life.
Florida law doesn't allow for a delay in sentencing when a defendant faces additional charges, Assistant State Attorney John Guy says in a motion filed Tuesday.
"The state submits that the defendant will not be placed in a 'legal dilemma' by proceeding to sentencing prior to the resolution of his remaining charge," Guy said. "By providing a recorded statement to police and by testifying under oath at the trial of the instant case, the defendant has made his position on all pending charges clear."
