WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed for a Wichita man who pleaded guilty to two felonies for a hit-and-run accident that killed a man riding a horse.

Authorities say a car driven by 26-year-old George Childers hit the horse last July 5. The horse was being ridden by 49-year-old Lloyd Ferguson and a 6-year-old boy. Ferguson was killed in the crash, and the boy was seriously injured. The horse was euthanized after the accident.

Childers pleaded guilty earlier to leaving the scene of an accident and interference with law enforcement.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1fA1R7v ) Childers‘ sentencing was postponed Wednesday after his lawyer challenged the way his criminal history was calculated.

District Judge Joe Kisner rescheduled the sentencing for April 22.
