Resentencing to be rescheduled

The resentencing of a Minnesota man serving two life sentences for murder in Iowa will be rescheduled.

The resentencing hearing for Michael Richard Swanson was originally set for today, but a motion for continuance was filed June 17.

Swanson was 17 when he shot Sheila Myers at a Humboldt convenience store on Nov. 15, 2010.

He shot Vicky Bowman-Hall at an Algona convenience store the same night.

Swanson was convicted in 2011 of murdering Myers. He pleaded guilty in 2011 to murdering Bowman-Hall.

The resentencing is a response to a motion to correct an illegal sentence, according to Iowa Courts Online. The motion was filed in June 2013 after an Iowa Supreme Court ruling opened the door for juveniles sentenced to life in prison to appeal their sentences.

The Iowa court ruling followed a 2012 United States Supreme Court ruling that threw out automatic life sentences for juveniles.
