NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -- The trial of the northern Kentucky woman accused of killing her sleeping husband could be delayed until next year.

Cheryl Mccafferty's trial was supposed to start Sept. 9, but the judge agreed to a continuance on Monday.

McCafferty is accused of shooting her husband Robert at their Fort Thomas home in June of last year.

Her attorneys have yet to indicate if they'll use a mental deficiency defense.

Another issue is police cameras used at the crime scene.

The defense says the camera needs to be examined by an expert to determine the order in which the photos were taken because their copies are not time stamped.

But one of the cameras has been destroyed while another was sold on E-bay.

"The information we receive as a result of this hopefullly will tell us the date, the exact time, so its not just the photo itself," said defense attorney Deanna Dennison.

"The police chief had already requested funding to replace those cameras so it wasn't something that just happened after cameras were used in this murder case," explained Commonwealth Attorney Jack Porter.

The defense still wants the trial moved out of Campbell County.

The case will be in court again on Wednesday, Aug. 6. That's when a new trial date will be set. Dennison believes the new date won't be until next year.
