GIST: "A jury trial in the case on Shelley Richter that was set for Monday, February 10 has been canceled, yet to be rescheduled. Richter was found guilty of endangering the welfare of a child in March of last year. At that time a new trial was filed for and it began in June, 2013. Richter is accused of shaking seven-month-old Lane Schaefer while looking after him at her in-home daycare in 2010. Richter accounts that she tripped over another child and dropped Schaefer, but prosecutors in her trial last year argued that the child's current symptoms stem from being shaken."
