Sentencing postponed for Islip man convicted of beating friend, burying him alive
Sentencing has been postponed for the Islip man who beat his friend and buried him alive.
Thomas Liming was found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2011 death of 18-year-old Kyle Underhill.
Prosecutors said Liming bludgeoned and choked Underhill, then buried him alive in a swamp on Brook Street in Islip.
Liming faces life in prison. He was due to be sentenced Monday, but authorities say sentencing will now take place on Jan. 27.
