The trial of Rebecca Grossman, who is accused of killing Mark and Jacob Iskander, was scheduled to take place next month, but has been delayed to 2024.

There's been yet another delay in the trial of a woman accused of killing two young boys in Westlake Village in September 2020.

Socialite Rebecca Grossman was due to be tried next month, for the murders of Mark and Jacob Iskander, who were 8 and 11 at the time.

The trial has been postponed to January 16th of next year. Grossman is accused of driving a speeding car which hit them as they crossed on a marked crosswalk and fleeing the scene. She denies the charges.

The mother of the boys, Nancy Iskander, told KCLU News that she’s “crushed” by the delay.
