37-year-old Hanane Mouhib is accused of decapitating her son, Abraham Cardenas, in their home in the Town of Sweden in April 2018. The trial was delayed again Monday morning to give attorneys more time, another hearing is set for September with a trial date of late October.

The trial of a mother accused of brutally killing her own son has been pushed back again.

Hanane Mouhib, 37, appeared at the Hall of Justice Monday morning for a pre-trial hearing. She is charged with second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say she decapitated her son, 7-year-old Abraham Cardenas, in their home on South Lake Road in the Town of Sweden in April 2018.

Mouhib was deemed mentally fit to stand trial in December, but her lawyers are still using a mental health defense.

Her defense team is still compiling their report to give to the district attorney, so the judge delayed the trial to give them more time.

"Whether you're competent to proceed, and whether or not you're not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, are two totally different and separate things," Monroe County Assistant District Attorney Sara Van Strydonck said.

Another hearing is set for September. The trial is now scheduled to begin in late October.

The Sweden mother accused of brutally killing her own son is due back in court Monday.
