Delay in trial of Naramore child death in Hot Springs

Posted By on Fri, Jun 3, 2016 at 11:10 AM

Marci Manley of KARK reports that Circuit Judge John Langston has granted a motion to delay the trial of Judge Wade Naramore on a misdemeanor negligent homicide charge in the hot car death of his 18-month-old son Thomas last July.

The trial had been set for June 14-17. The prosecution asked for a delay, in part to prepare for a defense expert witness on "forgotten child" cases. No new date has been set.

The judge said the delay was merited by the length of time the trial is expected to take, not "prosecution issues," according to Manley's Tweets from the court.

The defense said it was prepared to go to trial and argued against a delay.

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
