Sentencing has been rescheduled for Jan. 22 at 9:30 a.m. at the Tulsa County Courthouse, according to court records.
TULSA -- The final suspect in a high-profile murder-for-hire case is scheduled to be sentenced Friday.
Mohammed Aziz made an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for his testimony in the death of Tulsa businessman Neal Sweeney.
Sweeney was shot and killed in 2008.
Aziz was one of five men implicated in the homicide. Investigators say Terrico Bethel, Fred Shields, Allen Shields and Alonzo Johnson helped Aziz kill Sweeney for cutting off the gas supply to Aziz's station over unpaid bills.
Bethel, Johnson and Fred Shields have all been convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Allen Shields never went to trial. He cut a plea deal with prosecutors but later committed suicide during a standoff with police.
Sentencing for Aziz is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at the Tulsa County Courthouse.
