STOCKTON, Calif.—The release of a convicted killer that drew intense opposition as been delayed.Loren Herzog was due to be released on Sunday. But officials with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said Friday that Herzog’s release day was incorrectly calculated by the San Joaquin Superior Court.

Department spokesman Luis Patino said Herzog will be held for what he termed “several weeks” more.

He said a more definitive release date will be set after court officials recalculate Herzog’s sentence.

Herzog was accused in a killing spree in the 1980s and 1990s, but his murder convictions were overturned because of illegal interrogations.

He then pleaded guilty to a reduced charge and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
