NILES, Ohio -

Defense attorneys for Jacob Larosa say they need more time before the original May 11th deadline. 

The 18-year-old was found guilty in February of murdering his 94-year-old neighbor, Marie Belcastro at her Niles home in March 2015.

The attorneys say they need more time before submitting a sentencing memorandum to a judge. A sentencing memorandum contains factors for a court to consider before giving a sentencing. 

Although no date has been set yet for Larosa's sentencing, his attorneys are asking for a delay. They have specifically asked to push the date back to May 25.

Larosa is facing life in prison without the possibility of parole.
