Illness delays teen killer's sentencing

Illness delays teen killer's sentencing

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - The sentencing of a convicted Warren County killer was delayed Friday for six weeks after he fell ill during the hearing.

Timothy Mosley - one of two men accused of killing Justin Back, 18, of Waynesville earlier this year - pleaded guilty and has testified against his co-defendant, Austin Myers, as part of a deal to avoid the death penalty.

Prosecutors are pushing for life in prison without the possibility of parole. Warren County Common Pleas Court Judge Donald Oda has the final say.

Mosley and Myers, both 19, admitted to creating an elaborate plan to kill Back, a U.S. Navy recruit. Back was killed in a burglary. After, the teens dumped his body in a rural area.

Myers became the youngest inmate on Ohio's Death Row Thursday when Oda followed the jury's sentencing recommendation.
