Sentencing has been rescheduled for a man who has been convicted in connection to a Leavenworth shooting.

Sentencing has been rescheduled for a man who has been convicted in connection to a Leavenworth shooting.

A new sentencing date was scheduled James L. Madlock Jr. after a judge ruled Wednesday that the defendant is competent.

Madlock was convicted Aug. 2 in Leavenworth County District Court of attempted voluntary manslaughter, aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of aggravated endangering a child.

The charges stemmed from an incident that took place Nov. 12 at a Leavenworth apartment. The incident resulted in a man being wounded in the head and leg.

During his trial, Madlock was represented by attorney Joel Rook.

On Aug. 31, District Judge Gunnar Sundby allowed Rook to withdraw from the case. Rook said he made the request after Madlock wrote a letter asking for a different attorney.

Geoffrey Sonntag then was appointed to represent Madlock for post trial motions and sentencing.

Madlock recently was evaluated for competency at the request of Sonntag.

Sundby said Wednesday that, based on a competency report, Madlock "understands these proceedings and can assistant in his defense."

The judge acknowledged that the defendant may need some guidance as the proceedings move forward.

Sonntag said Wednesday that his client wants him to obtain medical records in the case.

"We're still discussing options for motions," Sonntag said.

Sundby scheduled sentencing for Dec. 7.
