A judge on Monday morning agreed to postpone sentencing for Sabrina Limon from Feb. 16 to Feb. 21. The judge also agreed to rule on Limon's request for a new trial when they reconvene in court Feb. 21.

Jurors found last fall that Limon conspired with her lover to kill her husband. She was convicted of murder and several other charges, but she's hired a new attorney and is seeking a new trial.

Limon's lover, Jonathan Hearn, shot railroad worker Robert Limon in 2014 at an industrial complex in Tehachapi. Hearn, who testified against Limon at her trial, was sentenced to more than 25 years in prison.
