DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit man who hasn’t been sentenced for manslaughter is expected to get his punishment — six years later.
The case of Leroy Moon has been puzzling to the judge who is holding a court hearing Wednesday.
The 78-year-old Moon had been free on bond since pleading no contest to manslaughter in 2011. Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway ordered him to jail on Jan. 8 to await his sentencing.
Moon was accused of shooting a man who urinated outside his fish market in 2009. He pleaded no contest after his murder trial ended in a mistrial.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said it lost track of the case after a prosecutor resigned and Moon’s health problems caused delays.
