TWIN FALLS -- A court hearing for a south-central Idaho woman accused of faking a pregnancy and receiving about $1,400 in financial donations and gifts has been delayed to give attorneys time to work out a deal.

The Times-News reports that 5th District Judge Roger Harris on Friday delayed the hearing for 44-year-old Lisa Holley for three weeks. Holley faces one count of grand theft by deception.

The hearing is for Harris to decide if prosecutors have enough evidence to take the case to trial.

In a separate case, Holley and her husband, 54-year-old Michael Holley, have been charged with two counts each of grand theft by deception after police say they told people their daughter had cancer and held a fundraiser.

Police say the child doesn't have cancer and lives with family in Washington state.
