Sentencing for a local man who had pled guilty to murder has been delayed and three out-of-state suspects charged with multiple counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument involving stolen or altered credit and debit cards were arraigned during the lengthy May 14 session of Clinton Circuit Court with Judge David L. Williams presiding.

During the scheduled sentencing of Michael E. Thompson, Judge Williams continued the sentencing until June 4 “if the co-defendant, Andrea Byler, enters a plea on that date,” according to court records. If no plea is entered, sentencing will be continued generally until after the co-defendant’s (Byler’s) trial.

The pair is accused in the October 2013 murder of Jimmy Sidwell, Jr., whose body was discovered underneath an unoccupied mobile home in south Albany. The victim died of multiple stab wounds, according to autopsy results.
