CLINTON, La. (AP) - Sentencing has been scheduled for Ryan Sharpe, who is convicted of murder and accused of additional shootings in 2017.

An East Feliciana Parish judge on Tuesday said Sharpe, 38, will be sentenced for first-degree murder on June 9.

Sharpe was convicted in the October 2017 death of Brad Defranceschi, 48.

Sharpe pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity but was later found fit for trial.

Sharpe has an upcoming trial in June for the September 2017 death of former Baton Rouge Park and Recreation Commissioner Carroll Breeden Sr.

Sharpe is also accused of killing Tommy Bass in July 2017 and wounding Buck Hornsby in September 2017.
