UPDATE: Doug Grant Sentencing Postponed Until Further Notice

Doug Grant, the onetime Phoenix Suns nutritionist convicted last month of manslaughter was scheduled to be sentenced Friday, May 1.

But Vincent Funari, the able public information officer for the Maricopa County Superior Court, just sent out an e-mail to announce that Grant's sentencing has been postponed until further notice because the defense team "submitted a lengthy mitigation package for the judge [Meg Mahoney] to review."

Grant faces up to 12 1/2 years in prison when Mahoney does sentence him. A jury convicted him of manslaughter in the 2001 death of his wife, Faylene, who died after being submerged in a bathtub at the couple's Gilbert home. (Those are the Grants in the photo, in Las Vegas at their second wedding just two months before Faylene's tragic death). 

Doug Grant has been in custody since the panel returned its verdict.

New Times has reported extensively about the controversial, high-profile case.
