CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - The trial of a New Mexico mother facing charges for having an incestuous relationship with her 19-year-old son has been has been moved to next year.

The Clovis News Journal reports (https://goo.gl/EY7hlG) that the trial for 36-year-old Monica Mares now is scheduled for March 2017.

District Court Judge Fred Van Soelen also moved the incest trial for 19-year-old Caleb Peterson to sometime next year but no date was giving. The move came after Ninth Judicial District Attorney Andrea Reeb asked for a fixed date.

Mares and Peterson made international headlines following a recent interview with the British paper the Daily Mail. They told the newspaper they made their relationship public to raise awareness about “Genetic Sexual Attraction.”

The mother and son are scheduled to face separate jury trials on one count each of incest.
