UTICA, N.Y. - The case of the Utica man accused of killing a homeless man two years ago was back in Oneida County Court.

No new evidence was heard in the case of the murder of 60-year-old Lawrence Edwards.

Instead, Raekwon Winston's defense attorney asked for more time and the case was adjourned Wednesday morning.

Winston was supposed to be sentenced in July after being found guilty in May.

Winston faces 25 years to life in prison.

He will be back in court on September 4.

The judge could have a decision on whether or not to set aside the verdict.
