Las Vegas (KTNV) — The final sentence of four men convicted of the murder of Arick Brill was delayed by another week.
Devon Phillips appeared in court on Tuesday for a scheduled hearing. His lawyer asked for a postponement, saying his client still needed to look into the pre-judgment investigation.
Brill was killed outside a house party in February 2009 near the boulevards of Charleston and Nellis. He was one of the two shot during the robbery that night.
Arthur Moore, Nadin Hiko, Devonte Wash and Phillips all pleaded guilty to killing Brill in a judicial transaction.
Moore was sentenced to 16 to 40 years in prison. Hiko was sentenced to 10 to 25 years in prison and Wash was sentenced to 2 to 5 years in prison. Phillips was finally sentenced to prison.
Brill’s mother, Karen Brill Kelly, says she was disappointed to hear the judge’s decision.
“It was a difficult road. I was absolutely looking forward to putting it all off,” he said.
The Philips decision hearing will continue at the Las Vegas Regional Justice Center on October 5, 11:00 am.
