DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty in the stabbing death of a homeless veteran near a suburban Philadelphia train station last year plans to appeal his life sentence next month.

The Bucks County Courier Times (https://bit.ly/1ritbsf ) reports that a Bucks County judge on Thursday allowed a delay in an appeal motion by 22-year-old Dale Wakefield of Doylestown.

New defense attorney William Craig Penglase said he needed more time to review the case.

Wakefield was sentenced to life after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in the July 2013 slaying of 71-year-old George Mohr near the Doylestown train station.

He was also sentenced to 5½ to 20 years on an assault conviction in an attack on a fellow inmate with a ball point pen during an argument in February.
