— The trial date in a Johnston County murder case has been delayed until November.

Lynn Paddock is charged with the Feb. 26, 2006 death of her 4-year-old adopted son, Sean. Investigators said she wrapped him so tightly in blankets that he suffocated.

Paddock was scheduled to go on trial in August, but busy court calendars pushed back the trial date.
