The trial of Cody Roberson has been postponed.

The trial was originally set to begin Aug. 13, but was reset for Sept. 10.

District Attorney John Terrill was unavailable Tuesday for comment, but Robersonís court-appointed attorney, Health Allen, said the trial date was moved because an expert witness for the defense could not be ready to testify in August.

Roberson is accused of killing his mother, Jana Roberson, in the familyís home in January. He is incarcerated in the Erath County Jail.
