Supporters of Marissa Alexander received a bit of good news Wednesday as the trial for the mother of three has been pushed back to July 28, 2014.

According to Bruce Zimet, Alexander’s attorney, the trial’s initial date, March 31, was too soon for adequate preparation. The new date, which was set on Jan. 30, is a plus for Zimet, who added that he needs additional time to get expert witnesses on battered women’s syndrome, ballistics, and research into contested testimony at Alexander’s first trial.

In addition to setting a new trial date, Judge James Danielrevealed his desire to ban live-streaming and the use of Twitter in the courtroom as well as impose strict rules on media coverage of the case in order to “control what picture is being shown” in pre-trial publicity.
