The sentencing for the man convicted of murdering his mother-in-law in her Lynchburg home has been delayed. Fifty-year-old Scott Miles was scheduled for sentencing Wednesday … but has been postponed until September 12th. A jury convicted Miles in March for fatally beating 86-year-old Lynda Slocum. A jury recommended Miles face a sentence of 35 years for the crime. A judge can impose a lower sentence than the jury’s recommendation but cannot exceed it.
