QUEENS, N.Y. - The man convicted in the murder of Katrina Vetrano earlier this month had his sentencing postponed Wednesday.

Chanel Lewis' sentencing was postponed amid allegations by the defense of jury misconduct.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for Monday.

Vetrano was killed while on a run near her Howard Beach home in 2016. 

Defense attorneys called the guilty verdict a miscarriage of justice and are appealing Lewis's conviction.

They tried to push for a mistrial but were denied by the judge.

The defense had gotten an anonymous tip that prosecutors may have withheld key evidence in the case.
