Final sentencing for Joseph Duncan in federal court in Boise on the seven remaining non-capital federal charges against him has been moved back to Nov. 3, from the previously scheduled Oct. 15 date. The court announced the change “in order to facilitate the completion of the presentence report and the schedules of all counsel.” Duncan’s already received death sentences on three counts for the murder of 9-year-old Dylan Groene in 2005; the remaining counts involve his kidnapping of Dylan and then-8-year-old sister Shasta. He’s pleaded guilty to all counts.
