Shamekia Shantell Byars, the infant’s mother, and Mike Reggie Haynes, her live-in boyfriend, both of 803 Darlington Way, were arrested and indicted in March 2009 on charges of murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and cruelty to children.
They are accused of causing the death of an infant, Sha’niya L. Moses, on Nov. 5, 2005, after the child died from severe head and brain injuries allegedly caused by physical abuse.
The indictment also alleges the couple intentionally delayed necessary medical treatment after the child received the injuries that led to her death.
Motions were scheduled to be heard this week, with a trial set for Nov. 30. Both of those dates were canceled and motions are scheduled to be heard on Jan. 25, 2010.
The trial is scheduled to begin on Feb. 15, 2010.
