Two convicted cop killers will not be sentenced Monday as previously scheduled.

In a court hearing this morning, defense attorneys are expected to file a motion asking for a new trial, among other post-trial motions.

No new sentencing date has been set at this time.

Toyious Taylor and Paris McGee were both convicted of killing Chicago police officer Thomas Wortham IV.

Separate juries found them both guilty of two counts of first-degree murder as accomplices.

Both were in the getaway car when Wortham was shot.

Taylor and McGee hit the officer with the car and dragged his body down the street.

Wortham was off duty when he was shot outside his parents’ home in the Chatham neighborhood in 2010.

Both Taylor and McGee face mandatory life sentences.
