WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has postponed sentencing for a woman who admitted harboring workers in the country illegally as part of a human trafficking operation in Asian massage parlors in Wichita.

A court notice filed Wednesday says the Jan. 29 sentencing of Xiuqing Tian (shoo-ching tee-AHN') of Framingham, Mass., will be rescheduled.

Tian has agreed to testify against her former employers, Gary Kidgell of Waltham (WAL'-tham), Mass., and his wife, Yan Zhang, of Wichita. But their trial was put on hold when Zhang's lawyer requested an evaluation to determine if she's competent to be tried.

Tian admitted in her plea deal she came to Wichita work for Kidgell and Zhang. She admitted the couple encouraged her to perform sexual acts for patrons of two massage parlors where she worked.
