WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) - The sentencing of a Wood County man who pleaded guilty to killing his one-time girlfriend and leaving her body in a bathtub was indefinitely delayed Monday.
Gabriel Campos, 21, was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide in May in the killing of 18-year-old Massie McCullough of Marshfield last September. He was to be sentenced Aug. 5 to the mandatory punishment of life in prison.
McCullough was found in the bathtub of the home the couple once shared. She had been stabbed in the back and her throat was cut. The couple had a 2-year-old son.
In a plea bargain, prosecutors dropped another felony charge against Campos - solicitation of first-degree intentional homicide - in a plot in which police say Campos offered another inmate $4,600, a rifle, and a car to kill the man McCullough had dated.
According to court records, Campos has a new attorney who requested that the sentencing be adjourned. A judge agreed Monday and set Aug. 30 for a status conference.
Wood County District Attorney Craig Lambert said no new sentencing date has been set and Campos has not filed a motion seeking to withdraw his guilty plea.
