FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - A Maricopa man convicted of a 2016 murder is awaiting sentencing.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports 19-year-old Arthur Magana's sentencing is affected by the fact he was 16 at the time of the fatal shooting.
According to a 2016 Supreme Court ruling, life without the possibility of parole can no longer be mandatory for defendants who were juveniles at the time of the crime.
On Monday, a Pinal County Superior Court judge continued Magana's sentencing until sometime in the future, perhaps in June.
Magana was convicted of first-degree murder and armed robbery in November 2018.
Authorities say 20-year-old Wyatt Miller was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds inside his truck in November 2016.
Magana remains jailed without bond until his sentencing.
