Sentencing hearing for Munyenyezi delayed

A judge has granted a request to again delay
the sentencing for a Manchester woman convicted of lying to obtain U.S. citizenship by denying her role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide.

Beatrice Munyenyezi was convicted in federal court in Concord in February. She faces up to 10 years in prison and deportation. Her sentencing was originally scheduled for June 3, but was pushed back to today after prosecutors sought more time. Yesterday, a judge granted a defense request to delay the hearing until July 15 because one of the defense attorneys had a scheduling conflict.
