Arraignment Postponed in Newborn Death

A Troy woman will not have to answer to charges of murdering her newborn son for two more months.

The arraignment for Tamara Kostman was supposed to be Wednesday. It has been postponed to April 2.

Kostman is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her son Dillon shortly after he was born on June 19, 2007.

Prosecutors say Kostman suffocated the infant at her home in Troy, Kan., by putting a wash cloth in his mouth.

She is jailed in Doniphan County on $1 million bond.
