There’s little question about the sentence Paloma Partners founder S. Donald Sussman’s former landscaper will receive for killing his daughter more than a year-and-a-half ago. But Adam Dobrzanski will have to wait for some more paperwork before his 40-year term is made official.
Dobrzanski was to be sentenced on Wednesday. But the hearing was postponed until Sept. 16; Dobrzanski’s lawyer told Greenwich Time that the pre-sentencing report is incomplete.
Howard Ehring said that Dobrzanski’s extensive medical and psychiatric problems have delayed the report’s completion.
Dobrzanski, 57, admitted he killed his 20-year-old daughter, Amanda, a University of Rhode Island student, on Dec. 30, 2009, at Sussman’s Greenwich, Conn., estate. The live-in landscaper, who has a history of mental health issues, was apparently distraught about his wife’s filing for divorce.
After slitting his daughter’s throat, Dobrzanski attempted to kill himself, stabbing himself repeatedly and pouring gasoline on his body. When police arrived, he attempted to jump out of a window.
Dobrzanski pleaded guilty to manslaughter and home invasion in May.
