Sentencing Delayed For Mayton In Fatal Dubuque Stabbing
DUBUQUE (AP) Sentencing is delayed for a Dubuque man found guilty of killing a friend and wounding a neighbor.
Michael Mayton was convicted of second-degree murder and several assault charges in July. His sentencing, which had been set for Aug. 30, is now scheduled for Sept. 17.
Mayton was accused in the stabbing death of his friend, David Tate, and the stabbing of his neighbor, Richard Schramm Jr., in August 2009.
After the jury's verdict, Mayton was accused of assaulting Dubuque County Attorney Ralph Potter with his cuffed hands as Mayton left the courtroom.
Mayton is charged with willful injury in that case.
