Two Akron teens convicted of murder in February for the shooting death of another teen had their sentencing delayed Tuesday.

Summit County Common Pleas Judge Kelly McLaughlin wants to hold a hearing on whether a new repeat violent offender registration requirement will apply to Tyler Morgan, 19, and John Smith, 17.

The registration requirement, which became effective March 20, means that defendants must register their address for 10 years after they are released from prison.

Morgan and Smith pleaded no contest to murder Feb. 4 and McLaughlin found them guilty. They both face 15 years to life in prison.

The teens are accused in the Feb. 13, 2018, shooting death of Shpetim Ramadani, 18.

Ramadani was a passenger in a Chrysler 300 when the occupants stopped in South Akron to talk to Morgan and Smith about 7 p.m. Morgan or Smith fired a gun into the vehicle, striking Ramadani in the chest, police said.

The driver of the Chrysler called police. Ramadani was later pronounced dead at Summa Akron City Hospital.

The dispute between the teens centered on an ounce of marijuana with a street value of less than $200, police say.

A hearing will be held on the registration issue on May 3, with sentencing to follow on May 10.
