Tyrone Mosby competency hearing rescheduled

ORLANDO, Fla. —

A judge was expected to rule Tuesday on whether a man convicted of shooting an innocent Orange County teenager and leaving her brain dead is fit to be sentenced. That hearing was canceled and rescheduled.

In March, Tyrone Mosby was found guilty of shooting 15-year-old Danielle Sampson as she was riding in her family's van in Pine Hills last year.

Sampson, now 16, suffered severe brain damage after the bullet went through her head.

A court-appointed doctor already recommended the court go forward with sentencing, but Mosby's defense team still argues he is mentally incompetent.

In the meantime, Sampson's family is moving forward with a lawsuit against Mosby.

Sampson's mother, Alma Fletcher, said she wants Mosby to pay for his wrongs.

The competency hearing is now scheduled for Sept. 6 at 1:30 p.m.
