WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has delayed the resentencing of two Texas brothers convicted of running a Kansas hunting camp where hunters paid thousands of dollars to illegally shoot deer.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot postponed the sentencing of James and Marlin Butler from Aug. 28 to Sept. 23 following a hearing Monday.

The Butlers, of Martinsville, Texas, ran Camp Lone Star near Coldwater. James Butler was sentenced in 2011 to 41 months in prison plus $50,000 in fines and restitution. His brother was sentenced to 27 months plus $20,000 in fines and restitution.

A federal appeals court threw out the sentences last year, saying the trial court mistakenly based them on the full price of a guided hunt instead of the value of the animals taken.
