COPIAH COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A high-profile murder trial scheduled to begin Tuesday has been delayed until next year.

Copiah County District Attorney Alexander Martin says David Dickerson's murder trial has been postponed until March 19, 2012. Dickerson is charged with the stabbing and shooting death of Paula Hamilton. Hamilton, 36, was the mother of Dickerson's teenage daughter.

Martin says the defense filed a request for a continuance in the trial so that Dickerson can be evaluated by psychiatrists.
