Sentencing postponed for man involved in 2005 homicide

November 17, 2006

Sentencing was postponed Thursday for a Salvadoran man who pleaded guilty in June to his role in a December 2005 homicide.

Angel Teodoro Villatoro, 36, pleaded guilty June 9 to involuntary manslaughter and first-degree assault in connection with the Dec. 10, 2005, stabbing death of Eliezer Rodriguez and stabbing of Eliezer's stepfather, Cesar Rodriguez, who survived his injuries.

Villatoro sought to have his guilty pleas withdrawn, but his motion to do so was denied during an October court hearing.

Villatoro's scheduled Thursday sentencing was postponed because a Spanish-speaking interpreter who was needed to translate for him was sick.

Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell rescheduled Villatoro's sentencing hearing for Dec. 4.
