Bulletin; Megan Martzen; California; ("Shaken-baby syndrome" case.) Murder trial delayed by flu. Expected to resume Wednesday. Fresno Bee.

STORY: "Martzen's trial delayed by flu," published by the Fresno Bee on February 4, 2013.

GIST:  "The child abuse and murder trial for Megan Martzen will be postponed for a second straight day because Martzen has the flu, her lawyer said Monday. Jeff Hammerschmidt, Martzen's lawyer, said she had a doctor's note to keep his client out of court for the entire week. But he said lawyers want to get the trial restarted at 10 a.m. Wednesday, if possible. Martzen is expected to testify again when the trial resumes."
