A judge will consider Monday if former NBA star Jayson Williams should be sentenced for the attempted cover up of that deadly shooting at his mansion seven years ago. He's expected to factor Williams' recent, erratic behavior -- including an assault arrest in North Carolina -- into his decision.

In 2004, Williams, 41, was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter in the fatal shooting two years prior of Costas Christofi at his Hunterdon County mansion. Jurors only convicted him on four counts of trying to cover up the incident, but were unable to reach a verdict on the reckless manslaughter charge. State Superior Court Judge Edward M. Coleman has delayed sentencing, pending Williams' retrial on that charge.

Prosecutors want the judge to reconsider the sentencing delay, due to Williams' recent problems with the law. In April, police used a stun gun on him, during an altercation in a hotel room in New York. And in May, he was arrested in North Carolina and charged with assault for allegedly punching someone in a barroom brawl.

William has been free on bail since Christofi's death, despite being convicted for the cover-up; defense attorneys are seeking to overturn the conviction on the grounds of racial bias.

Earlier this year, Williams' wife filed divorce papers claiming he was abusive and had a drug problem.
