HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- "It has been a long time." That was the response of a woman charged with murder when asked how she felt about her trial being delayed 10 times.

Teresa Baker was supposed to go to trial Tuesday for the shooting death of her daughter’s boyfriend, Jeffrey Sadler, in February 2008.

Baker says she shot Sadler to protect her daughter, who he'd threatened to stab with a knife.

Tuesday morning Baker returned to court where she learned her trial will now take place on September 8.

The latest delay is due in part to Corky Hammers being named Cabell County Prosecuting Attorney earlier this year, and now handling the case.
