SBS: Missouri: Shelley Richter trial postponed

Kate Walls Lauman: June 13 2011

The trial for Shelley Richter was scheduled to start Monday. According to online court documents, the trial has been pushed back to January.
Last September, the Taos woman was charged with child abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. A grand jury alleged she hit and shook 7-month-old Lane Schaeffer.
Richter said she dropped Lane on a concrete floor after tripping over another child at her home daycare. However, doctors testified that the baby's injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
