A motions hearing was set for 10 a.m. today for convicted murderer Robert Jarman.

Jarman was convicted in October of second degree murder in the Aug. 22, 2007 shooting death of his wife Suzzane Jarman.

He was convicted of second degree intentional murder on Oct. 29, 2009.

The motion hearing was orignially scheduled for Dec. 15 and Jarman was to have been sentenced today. However, the motion hearing was continued until today and sentencing will be reset after today’s hearing.

Assistant Attorney General Travis Harrod, who helped prosecute the case said Thursday the state will be asking the judge to sentence Jarman according to the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines.

“We’re going to be asking the judge to sentence him according to the grid,” Harrod said.

Jarman’s attorney Samuel Marsh, was in court on Thursday and could not be reached for comment.

The jury in Jarman’s trial took just two hours to return the guilty verdict after four days of testimony, which hinged mostly on expert witnesses.

Jarman remains free on bond while awaiting sentencing, subject to electronic monitoring and court supervision.
