TROY - Sentencing has been delayed for Johnny Oquendo, the Troy man convicted of murdering his stepdaughter.
The prosecutor said sentencing was delayed due to an issue with the pre-sentence investigation.
A jury previously found that Oquendo killed his stepdaughter Noel Alkaramla, stuffed her body into a suitcase and dumped it into the Hudson River in November 2015.
Her body was found in December of that same year.
Oquendo faces 25 years to life in prison when he's sentenced on Jan. 11.
