The sentencing for a San Luis Obispo man charged with murdering his neighbor over a cell phone dispute was postponed Wednesday.
Edmund Nungaray, 60, previously entered a guilty plea to second-degree murder. According to court records, he strangled 46-year-old Dierdre Crowley on Sept. 29, 2012 after the two had argued over a cell phone Nungaray owned.
Nungaray’s plea calls for a prison term of 15 years to life.
Though he was supposed to be sentenced Wednesday, his attorney, Jay Peterson, asked for more time to prepare for the hearing.
