CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- The murder trial of a Cedar Rapids man and his ex-girlfriend charged in the death of his young daughter is being delayed.
Zyriah Schlitter and Amy Parmer, of Hiawatha, are accused in the death of 17-month-old Kamryn Schlitter in March 2010. She died a week after medics found her suffering from seizure-like symptoms at a Hiawatha apartment.
KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids reports Schlitter asked for a continuance during a pre-trial conference last Friday in Linn County District Court. Parmer and the state didn't resist. A new trial date will be scheduled.
Schlitter and Parmer are both charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment resulting in death. Both have pleaded not guilty and are free on bond.
