Trial for southern Kentucky woman accused of killing mother postponed

A woman accused of killing her mother was supposed to stand trial Thursday, but it was postponed.

Patricia Lawson and her daughter, Michelle Loy of Whitley County are charged with the murder of 76 year old Georgia Dotson back in January.

Now the two won't be back in court until January of next year.

At first, police thought Dotson may have fallen, but an autopsy later revealed she died from blunt force trauma and the injuries had been covered with make-up.

Both Lawson and Loy face murder and criminal abuse charges.
