Judge sets new trial date for Kelli Jacobsen
The former nanny accused of being responsible for the death of the one-year-old child she was watching over nearly two years ago gets a second trial date today.
Kelli Jacobsen is charged with manslaughter in the June 2011 death of Ryder Morrison.
Last week, a jury that heard the case announced it could not come to a verdict, and the judge declared a mistrial.
The Benton County prosecutor is re-trying the case.
Attorneys set a new trial date of August 5th this morning.
But Jacobsen's attorney Scott Johnson, says he may not be ready to go to trial until October or early November.
Johnson says his work load has recently increased because the attorney he used to work with, Salvador Mendoza, was just appointed to be a superior court judge.
Jacobsen will return to court for a status hearing on May 30th.
