HOBBS, N.M. - A Hobbs teen who killed an elderly woman will have to wait to find out how long he'll spend in prison.

Sentencing for 17-year-old Juan Rivas, Junior has been put off until March.

His attorney asked for more time.

Rivas murdered 83-year-old Clara Alvarez in her home in the summer of 2011.

He was later caught driving around in her car.

During a taped interview, the teen claimed he stabbed her to death because he wanted to "let his anger out."
