A Fayette Circuit Court judge has rescheduled the sentencing for a man convicted in July on two counts of murder.
Carlos Ordway, 29, of Louisville was to be sentenced Friday morning, but Judge Pamela Goodwine delayed the sentencing in order to give everyone more time to prepare for the hearing.
The sentencing was rescheduled for Oct. 29.
Goodwine told attorneys that she would prefer that the sentencing occur sooner, but the October date was the earliest that everyone involved in the case was available.

A jury recommended that Ordway receive the death penalty. But Goodwine could sentence Ordway to 20 to 50 years, life in prison, life without parole for at least 25 years or life without parole.
Ordway was convicted of fatally shooting Patrick Lewis, 21, and Rodrieques Turner, 25, both of Louisville, while the two were inside a car on Appian Way in Lexington. Defense attorneys had argued that Ordway acted in self-defense.
