A New York City trial for a Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin has been postponed.

Genevieve Sabourin appeared Monday in a Manhattan court. She rejected a plea deal and hired a new lawyer, so her trial date was postponed until May 13.

Sabourin and Baldwin met on the set of the 2002 sci-fi comedy "The Adventures of Pluto Nash." Baldwin says they had dinner together in 2010.

Authorities say she had implored Baldwin to see and to marry her. They say she sent him emails only days after he became engaged to yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.

Sabourin later spent a night in jail after she was accused of sending Thomas a Twitter message.

Baldwin and Thomas married and are expecting their first child together.
