Sentencing delayed for BK teen in murder of radio newsman

Sentencing has been delayed for the Brooklyn teenager convicted of killing radio newsman George Weber in 2009.

John Katehis, 19, faces 25 years to life in prison for the fatal stabbing in Carroll Gardens. Police say Katehis went to Weber's apartment in response to an online sex ad. The teen admitted to the murder, but says he acted in self defense.

A first jury was deadlocked on a decision for more than a year, but it took a second jury just over a day to find Katehis guilty.
