Sentencing delayed for man accused of murder

ALBANY -- A sentencing was pushed back on Monday after the defendant withdrew his original plea and fired his lawyer.

Michael Anderson, 29, was scheduled to be sentenced to 45 years to life behind bars. He had previously entered a guilty plea to one count of murder and two counts of assault in an attack on his ex-girlfriend's sister on Myrtle Avenue in November 2012. Tonnette Thomas was stabbed to death, and two other victims were injured in the incident.

On Monday, Anderson fired his attorney after he says the man had a sexual relationship with someone from the District Attorney's office. The case will return to court in April
