PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sentencing has been delayed in Pennsylvania for a man convicted of killing a woman 4.5 years ago shortly before she was to meet with prosecutors about his New Jersey-supplied heroin ring.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Price Montgomery told a judge Tuesday he wanted to get rid of his court-appointed lawyers. They said they wanted to end their relationship with him as well.

Montgomery was convicted in the August 2014 shooting death of 34-year-old Tina Crawford and the wounding of her 63-year-old mother in Pittsburgh.

His attorneys said he hasn’t talked to them and hasn’t taken part in a required pre-sentence interview.

He said he blames them for having contributed to my demise.

In the end, Montgomery and his attorneys were persuaded to stay the course through the defendant’s sentencing.
