LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sentencing was reset to July 14 for a woman who pleaded guilty to conspiring to poison the husband of a woman convicted separately of plotting with her brother and her son to kill the man for his life insurance.

Clark County District Court Judge Carolyn Ellsworth postponed sentencing Courtney Smith on Wednesday because the brother and son are due for sentencing next month in their cases.

Smith is 21. She pleaded guilty last May to conspiracy to commit a felony and testified in November against Amy Denise Pearson Bessey.

Amy Bessey was convicted of seven felonies including conspiracy and attempted murder in the November 2012 wounding of Robert Bessey while driving on Interstate 15.

Smith was accused of conspiring with Amy Bessey to kill Robert Bessey on Father's Day 2012.
