Detavis King sentencing hearing on Tuesday

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - In Chesterfield, a hearing is set for the young man accused of killing Ryan Matko.

Detavis King is scheduled for sentencing, but his attorney has plans to ask for a new trial.

King's attorney will make the request based on what he believes was improper testimony during the 2009 trial.

Last year, King was convicted of first degree murder in the 2007 shooting.
