VIRGINIA BEACH -- Jury selection was scheduled Monday in the trial of a Va. Beach woman accused of killing her foster child, but instead, the trial was delayed.  
Kathleen Ganiere is facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of 9-month-old Braxton M. Taylor.
Authorities say the little boy died from shaken baby syndrome a year ago today, a day after being rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
A date is being worked out for her trial, perhaps in April, Commonwealth's Attorney spokeswoman Macie Pridgen told
Ganiere has been free on bond awaiting trial on three charges -- second degree murder, child cruelty/neglect/abuse and child cruelty/neglect/abuse/reckless.
"If convicted of all three charges, she faces between eight years and 55 years in prison," Pridgen noted.
