Bianca Rojas Latraverse was supposed to stand trial Friday in Longueuil for allegedly robbing ex-boyfriend and poker champion Jonathan Duhamel.
But judge Anne Marie Jacques has agreed to delay the proceedings until Monday while Latraverse visits a doctor in the Tanguay detention centre. The 21-year-old's lawyer said she was involved in an accident.
Latraverse has been behind bars since January. She was arrested shortly after Duhamel was robbed and beaten in his South Shore home.
Two young men were also arrested after the home invasion and accused of stealing upwards of $160,000 in cash along with a Rolex watch and Duhamel's 2010 World Series of Poker championship bracelet. They also have court dates set for Monday.
Duhamel took home just under $9 million in earnings after winning the 2010 World Series of Poker
