BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — A judge has granted another trial delay for a man accused of killing his 3-week-old son in southeast Iowa.
The Hawk Eye reports that 23-year-old Randall Payne’s trial is now scheduled to begin May 3. It had been scheduled to begin next week.
Payne’s attorney had sought a delay until July, when a Minnesota forensic pathologist would be available. The judge refused that request but agreed that the pathologist may take part in a video deposition in March that the defense could present at trial.
Payne was arrested at his rural Burlington home in May. The body of Carter Joseph Payne was found by emergency crews after they responded to his father’s 911 call on Nov. 9last year.
