MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - Sentencing has been rescheduled for a New Jersey man who pleaded guilty in the death of his wife.

Burlington County prosecutors say 29-year-old Kyle Crosby has had his sentencing rescheduled from Thursday to March 10 in Burlington.

Prosecutors say the Mount Laurel man pleaded guilty in December to aggravated manslaughter and hindering apprehension in the death of 26-year-old Erica Crippen.

Investigators found Crippen’s body in March along a rural road in Sykesville, Maryland. She had been missing since New Year’s Eve, and Crosby admitted to choking her that day.

Prosecutors have said Crosby will receive consecutive terms totaling 31 years when he’s sentenced under a plea deal. He must serve 85 percent of the sentence for the manslaughter charge before he becomes eligible for parole.
