A Benton County mother accused of raping and abusing her son to death will now face a jury in November. 
Cathy Lynn Torres and her husband Mauricio are both charged with capital murder, rape, and battery charges in the death of their son. 
After being pushed back multiple times in a court appearance Tuesday, Cathy Torres’ trial was moved to November 1. 
Mauricio Torres is slated to face a jury in a separate trial in August. 
Their son, 6-year-old Isaiah Torres died in March 2015 when investigators discovered the boy was regularly abused. Isaiah died from injuries caused by being raped.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in both cases.
