EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed for a man convicted in the stabbing death of his estranged girlfriend at a western Pennsylvania car wash a year ago.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1DvGZIr ) reports that a Cambria County court agreed to a defense request to put off sentencing for 22-year-old Demetrius Gibson of Johnstown to allow resolution of drug charges.

Gibson was convicted last month of third-degree murder and aggravated assault in the August 2013 slaying of 21-year-old Elizabeth Ann Miller in the parking lot of the Dollar Car Wash in Johnstown.

He was initially also charged with possession of heroin found in a vehicle he had been driving which was later found abandoned, but those charges were severed from the homicide case.

Gibson is now scheduled to be sentenced in late November.
