A Shreveport man convicted of the first degree murder of his 1-year-old son will have to wait almost three months to be formally sentenced to the death penalty.

Rodricus Crawford, who was convicted Nov. 12  in the February 2012 death of his baby, was scheduled to be sentenced today, but Judge Joe Bleich continued the sentencing until Feb. 21, 2014.

The Caddo Parish jury that convicted Crawford also voted in favor of the death penalty after a full day of testimony during the penalty phase of the trial. In Louisiana, conviction of first degree murder is only punishable by death or life imprisonment without possibility of parole, probation or suspension.
