OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A plea hearing has been delayed for one of four men charged with killing a suburban Kansas City gun store owner.

Deanthony Wiley is charged in Johnson County court with first-degree murder in the January shooting death of Jon Bieker at the She’s A Pistol gun store in Shawnee. Bieker was killed while defending his wife during a robbery at the store. His wife suffered minor injuries.

Wiley had been scheduled to enter a plea Thursday, but defense attorneys said they needed additional time to review sentencing documents.

The plea hearing was postponed Thursday until Sept. 18.

Three other men are also charged in the case. All four suspects are being held in the Johnson County Jail.
