ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The sentencing for the woman accused of stabbing a man in Rochester has been postponed due to the new criminal justice reform laws.
The law requires that when domestic violence is involved, the suspects must have a hearing to address the domestic violence before being sentenced for the crime.
27-year-old Jazmine Simmons was convicted of murder for the death of 73-year-old George Rogers in December.
In January of last year, Simmons got into an argument with Rogers — where she then stabbed him 76 times in his home.
Rogers body was found the following month by his landlord.
The new sentencing for Simmons is scheduled for February 7.
