Today's sentencing for an Iowa City man involved in the slaying of an Iowa City landlord will likely be postponed until a codefendant stands trial in September, according to online court documents.

Charles William Curtis Thompson, 19, was formerly charged with first-degree murder after the shooting death of Broadway apartment landlord John Versypt, 64, in October 2009.

Thompson pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of accessory after the fact; he is expected to testify against codefendant Justin Marshall.

Marshall's trial was postponed from May 22 to Sept. 18.
