The sentencing of dancehall entertainer Ninja Man and his co-convicts has been put off until Monday.

Ninja Man, whose real name is Desmond Ballentyne, his son Janiel, and Dennis Clayton were to be sentenced in the Home Circuit Court yesterday for the 2009 murder of Ricardo Johnson.

Ninja Man, Janiel, and Clayton were convicted last month for the murder in the Lower Mall Road community of Kingston.

However, the sentencing had to be postponed because Clayton's attorney was absent and some character witnesses were not available for court today.

The three convicts face up to life in prison.
