Trial delayed for man charged with killing child

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — The trial for an Iowa Falls man charged with killing his infant daughter has been delayed until next month.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported (http://bit.ly/18xnmAL ) Tuesday that the trial for 27-year-old Trevor Eugene Smith had been set to begin this week. He’s charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment causing death.

The trial was postponed until Aug. 27 to give lawyers more time to prepare.

Prosecutors say Smith was caring for his 2-month-old daughter, Aubriana Christian, last September in Waterloo when she stopped breathing. Doctors later determined the girl had a brain bleed that wasn’t caused by an accident. She died Oct. 2 after being removed from life support.
