The Court of Queen’s Bench delayed its ruling on 22-year-old Nathan Gordey.
Justice David Gates said he requires more time to weigh arguments from the Crown and the Defence before sentencing.
In April 2019, RCMP arrested and charged Gordey for his part in an alleged home invasion in Timberlea.
The incident resulted in the killing of 20-year-old Brandon Stevens.
Gordey pleaded guilty to charges of break and enter to commit robbery and forcible confinement with a firearm.
On May 20, co-accused Brent Goodridge pleaded guilty to manslaughter among other charges for his role in the home invasion.
The courts sentenced him to four years in prison.
Gordey will appear in court via a closed-circuit feed on July 17, 2020, at 2 p.m.
