MOBERLY, Mo. (AP) -
A Moberly man convicted of raping a woman and leaving her in a freezer to die will be sentenced in June.
Sean Williams, 36, was to be sentenced Friday for four felony convictions but the sentencing was delayed until June 7.
Williams was convicted in February of being 1 of 4 men who assaulted the woman after partying with her at a Moberly motel in February 2012.
The victim told police the four men took her to an abandoned basement, where they tied her hands and sexually and physically assaulted her. They placed her in the freezer, with cinder blocks on top. It had no air holes.
The Moberly Monitor-Index reports the woman was able to escape after the men left the home.
