STORY: "New judge assigned in Suisan City baby death case," by reporter Ryan Chalk, published by The Reporter on February 8, 2014.

GIST: "A Suisun City man accused of murder and felony child abuse related to the death of an infant in 2010 was back in court briefly on Friday where his case was assigned to a new judge. The trial for Reginald Tanubagijo was expected to begin last month in the Fairfield courtroom of Judge Robert C. Fracchia, however, Tanubagijo's defense counsel, Martinez criminal defense attorney Jaye Ryan, was granted a continuance due to new evidence that had been recently obtained. More recently Fracchia, in the course of reviewing records in the case, self-disqualified himself and sent the case to another judge for reassignment. On Friday Tanubagijo's case was assigned to Judge Robert Bowers in Fairfield. The setting of a new trial date was scheduled for 9 a.m. on Feb. 18.........During a July 2012 probable cause hearing, two doctors called to testify by prosecutors opined that non-accidental trauma caused the baby's death. However, a forensic pathologist called to testify by Ryan testified that while the cause of death was blunt head trauma, it was possible that it could have been the result of an accidental fall."
