The South Bend teenager who shot and killed police corporal Scott Severns in 2006 will be sentenced later this month.
Jeff Finley, 19 years old, pleaded guilty to all murder and attempted robbery charges against him in May.
Last week, his lawyer requested Finley undergo psychological tests before being sentenced, but on Friday a judge denied that motion.
Finley will be back in court Wednesday, September 12th.
He could face life in prison without parole.
