CARSON CITY, NV - Another change in plea has resulted in a delay in sentencing in the case involving the robbery of a World War II veteran over Memorial Day weekend.

101-year-old James Sorrentino passed away Friday, September 26, 2014, but not before writing a Victim Impact Statement, according to Mark Kruger with the Carson City District Attorney's Office

Robert Hernandez, who was scheduled to face a jury trial beginning October 6th after pleading not guilty to robbery against a person over the age of 60 has changed his plea to guilty

Jordan Burkhart, who pleaded guilty to the same charge was scheduled to be sentenced September 30th. Both defendants are now scheduled to be sentenced October 28th, 2014, according to the Carson City's District Attorney's Office.

Detectives say both men forced their way into James Sorrentino's home, attacking him and ransacking the house. They got away with a watch, a pocketknife and a wallet containing $30.
