NEW ORLEANS - A federal judge has postponed a sentencing hearing for a former New Orleans police officer who was convicted of fatally shooting a man in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.

The former officer, David Warren, was scheduled to be sentenced March 24. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Lance Africk moved the hearing to March 31 because the judge has a scheduling conflict.

The jury that convicted Warren of manslaughter in the death of 31-year-old Henry Glover also convicted Officer Gregory McRae of burning his body in a car and convicted Lt. Travis McCabe of writing a false report on the shooting. Africk is scheduled to sentence McRae and McCabe separately.
