EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ A trial for an Emporia woman accused of
abandoning her newborn baby in a trash bin has been postponed until March 21.
Christina Devine was charged with attempted first-degree murder
after her 7-pound, 10-ounce baby was found alive in a trash bin at
an Emporia apartment complex in October. KVOE reports that Devine's trial was tentatively scheduled to begin Feb. 28.
Lyon County District Judge Merlin Wheeler also ruled Thursday
that the trial will remain in Lyon County. Wheeler also ruled to
suppress Devine's statements made to an investigator for the state
Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, but allowed
statements made to police.
