LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A judge has delayed sentencing of a man convicted in a Lincoln slaying so the man’s lawyer can check an informant’s tip that someone else may have been the shooter.

In July 20-year-old Joshua Carr pleaded no contest and was convicted of manslaughter and two other charges in the Aug. 30 killing of Maurice Williams.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1NqbNC2 ) that Carr’s attorney, Sarah Newell, says the informant told police a man another man had come to his home covered in blood and said he shot Williams.

On Thursday Judge Steven Burns delayed the sentencing until Sept. 8.
