LAS VEGAS (AP) — Sentencings have been pushed back for three people guilty in the Las Vegas conspiracy-murder of a U.S. Air Force service member from Guam.

Court records show Michelle Paet, Michael Rodriguez and Corry Hawkins are now scheduled to be sentenced together March 3. Sentencings had been scheduled Tuesday.

Rodriguez was convicted at trial and Hawkins took a plea deal. Both will be spared the death penalty for the December 2010 slaying of Staff Sgt. Nathan Paet.

Paet's wife, Michelle Paet, pleaded guilty in October. She could get life in prison, or parole after 21 years.

Prosecutors say the slaying stemmed from a plot to collect $650,000 in life insurance.

Nathan Paet was 28 when he died. He was shot five times as he prepared to drive to work at Nellis Air Force Base.
