The murder trial for the Utica woman who is accused of stabbing her mother to death last year has been postponed.
Tasheonia Hills is charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon after she allegedly stabbed her mother, 44-year-old Irene Williams, to death on Feb. 2, 2017 at their Humphrey Gardens apartment. Hills’ defense says that she wasn’t able to process what was happening the night her mother was killed because she wasn’t mentally stable at the time.
Hills’ trial was scheduled to being Monday in Oneida County Court, but Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara says the prosecution is still addressing the psychiatric defense, so the trial has ben postponed.
Jury selection for the trial is now scheduled to begin on Oct. 22.
