GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. A Grand Junction foster parent accused of killing an 11-month-old baby in her care, was back in court on Tuesday.
Sydney White is charged with first degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. White was in court on Tuesday with the expectation of getting a decision regarding a plea, or sentencing arraignment of her charges, but that has since been put off.
According to District Attorney Dan Rubenstein the prosecution is still negotiating details regarding the case. Her plea hearing is now scheduled in July.
The mother was arrested in September after 11-month-old Angel Place died. A police affidavit says white admitted to dropping the baby on her head, and later shaking her while holding her by the neck.
