Fraser was scheduled to be sentenced this past Wednesday afternoon, but the matter has been adjourned to April 29 to fix a new date for sentencing.

Fraser has been in custody since the night Foster died, but was unable to attend court this week.

Second-degree murder comes with a mandatory life sentence, with parole eligibility between 10 and 25 years, but the jury made no recommendation on the length of time Fraser will serve behind bars before being eligible for parole.

That will be for Justice Len Marchand to decide during sentencing.

Fraser stabbed Foster to death while visiting him at his home in a Dallas trailer park.

Foster sustained multiple stab wounds and lacerations to his face and neck, as well as a broken jaw, nose and skull.
