Decision on new sentence for 'Marine A' delayed

Sergeant Alexander Blackman, who's known as 'Marine A', was jailed for killing a Taliban fighter.

A Royal Marine, who was jailed for killing an injured Taliban fighter in Afghanistan, will have to wait until next week to find out if he will be released.

Judges were due to re-sentence Sergeant Alexander Blackman after his murder conviction was downgraded to manslaughter.

An appeal was granted after new evidence emerged around his mental health.

His wife, Claire Blackman, said she was "delighted" after the new verdict was announced. She added, "it much better reflects the circumstances that my husband found himself in during that terrible tour of Afghanistan".

But now Blackman, who's also known as 'Marine A', will have to wait until Tuesday, after judges postponed their decision.
