Sentencing hearing for Newton couple delayed


NEWTON, Kan. (KSNW) – The sentencing hearing of James and Paige Nachtigal scheduled for today has been postponed according to Harvey County Attorney David Yoder.

Both pled guilty to child abuse last August. Court documents show two of the children had broken bones, including an arm that might have required surgery and a broken rib which was several months old.

The sentencing was set for 9 a.m. but was delayed due to a death in the family of one of the defense attorneys.

A rescheduled date for the sentencing hearing has been set for the morning of March 8 at 9:30.
