DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - Sentencing for one of four suspects in a deadly shooting at Rocklawn Place has been continued.

The Danville Commonwealth's Attorney says Maurice Williams, Jr. will be sentenced on March 2, 2016.

Back in November, Williams pled guilty to second-degree murder, two counts of breaking and entering, grand larceny, and petty larceny in the death of Bennie Sigmon.

Police say Sigmon was shot multiple times back in June when he went outside to confront Williams, Evin Shaw, Jibri Pettus, and Kadarius Ferrell, who were trespassing on his property.

Williams faces a maximum sentence of 100 years and 12 months.
