Sentencing delay for convicted murderer Zachary Mueller

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (KNEP) - Sentencing is being delayed for a Bridgeport man convicted of killing a Colorado man and stuffing his body into a barrel.

The February 27th court date for the Zachary Mueller is now March 13th. Last month, Mueller was convicted of first degree murder, use of a weapon during a felony and being a felon in possession of a weapon in the death of 33 year old Pedro Dominguez.

He's facing life in prison on the murder conviction, and up to 50 years each on the additional counts. In addition, the sentencing judge could also find that Mueller is a habitual criminal.

The original sentencing date for Mueller was moved because it conflicted with the scheduled homicide trial for William Reed of Alliance.
