(Provo-AP) -- He was convicted in November for killing his estranged wife with a shotgun, but he won't be sentenced for a few more weeks.

Robert Steven Hatch requested a new attorney last month and was appointed one last week. Now, Hatch's new attorney is asking for a few more weeks to prepare for the sentencing.

Hatch's two original sentencing dates in December in January were scrapped first because of attorneys' conflicting schedules and then when Hatch asked for a new lawyer.

Hatch was convicted in November of murdering 31-year old Sharee Hatch after breaking into her Spanish Fork home in July 2002.

He could receive up to life in prison and at least 25-thousand dollars in fines.
