The sentencing hearing for convicted murderer Leif Hobson has been pushed back for the second time.
The final decision in the murder case was supposed to take place Monday, but it has now been moved to the end of September.
Hobson was convicted for the 2009 death of 65-year-old Edgar Marion.
Hobson pleaded guilty in July to second-degree murder, causing an indignity to human remains, stealing property and intentionally causing damage by fire.
Both the Crown and defense have agreed that the 23-year-old should receive a life sentence, with eligibility for parole in 15 years. But the sentencing was delayed due to the Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre's inability to produce a Gladue report.
The report helps the judge take into account the circumstances facing Aboriginal people and is required when sentencing an Aboriginal offender.
Justice Bruce Fitzpatrick will now deliver his sentencing on Sept. 24 at 9 a.m.
