Sentencing delayed in slaying case

Sentencing for a Blood gang member who pleaded guilty to his role in the shooting death of an Edgewood cab driver in 2004 was postponed last week after the victim's family, expected to deliver an impact statement, failed to show.

Darrell Levon Miller, 21, entered into a plea agreement last fall in exchange for testimony against 18-year-old Wayne Lavon Bond Jr., who police said was the gunman in the killing of Derald Howard Guess.

Miller's sentencing was rescheduled for June 7.
