Trials will begin on Feb. 23 for Amanda Beaty, and her boyfriend Rodger Prince.
The two appeared in court Monday after being charged with first degree murder in the death of Levi Beaty. The young boy was found dead in June of 2014.
A few weeks after her son’s death, Amanda Beaty told WATE 6 On Your Side her baby choked on a cookie and had poor health from several medical conditions. However, an autopsy report that was released says the child passed away from multiple blunt force injuries.
