(CROWN POINT) -- A Lake County judge has postponed until January the trial of a Hammond man charged with killing his 13-year-old son three years ago.

The Post-Tribune reported Monday that Lake Superior Court Judge Diane Ross Boswell agreed to postpone the trial of Riley Choate from Oct. 9 to Jan. 7 at the request of the man's newly appointed public defender.

The 40-year-old Choate is charged with murder and neglect in the death of Christian Choate.

Boswell also has agreed to allow prosecutors to take depositions from children who are witnesses in the case, but she hasn't ruled on whether those sworn statements will be used instead of live testimony during the trial.
