OKLAHOMA CITY – The sentencing for an Oklahoma City man, accused in a high-stakes illegal gambling ring, has been delayed.

Teddy Mitchell pleaded guilty in July to involvement in an international Internet sports gambling business.

The allegations came to light shortly after his wife, Julie, was found beaten to death in their Oklahoma City home in 2010.

Her murder remains unsolved.

Mitchell’s sentencing was set for Tuesday in a federal court, but defense attorneys asked for leniency in the case for the sake of his daughter, who was 13-months-old at the time of Julie’s murder.

Mitchell claims that since his wife’s death, he has been raising his now 4-year-old daughter by himself.
