HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) - A sentencing hearing for 19-year-old Charles Dalton Shoemake, who pleaded guilty in the 2012 slaying of an Olive Branch man, has been continued to March 18.

Shoemake, of Olive Branch, pleaded guilty on Jan. 14 to the slaying of Paul Victor III, his 21-year-old neighbor. Victor’s body was dumped in Shelby Farms in Memphis and set on fire. He was discovered by a jogger.

Shoemake and 24-year-old Nicholas McDaniel Walker were arrested and charged soon after the 2012 slaying.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1ctKIgH ) Walker has not entered a plea, and his trial has been set for May 5.

Shoemake’s sentencing was set for Tuesday in DeSoto County Circuit Court in Hernando, but his attorney requested the delay.
