KUSA - The sentencing for a man convicted of hitting and killing a Colorado State Patrol cadet has been rescheduled. It was initially slated for Friday morning. 

Christopher Gebers, 28, automatically faces a life sentence after he was convicted by a Boulder County jury of first-degree murder in Cadet Taylor Thyfault’s death.

Trooper Clinton Rushing was also injured when Gebers plowed into them as he was evading police.
