PHILADELPHIA — Sentencing has been postponed for a former day care worker convicted of abducting a 5-year-old girl from her school classroom and sexually assaulting her during a 19-hour ordeal.

Christina Regusters has been scheduled for sentencing Thursday but lawyers say they're still waiting on psychological reports. The hearing has not been rescheduled.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old donned a Muslim dress and veil to impersonate the girl's mother and take her from Bryant Elementary School in January 2013, then posed as three different people to trick the blindfolded child.

The girl was found half-naked the next morning at a cold, dark playground.

A jury convicted Regusters in September on charges including kidnapping, aggravated assault and indecent deviate sexual intercourse.

Prosecutors have said they'll seek a life sentence.
