"A Calhoun County judge said Monday he will not delay the trials of two men charged in separate homicide cases of children. But attorneys for both said they will immediately file motions with the Michigan Court of Appeals seeking delays. Circuit Judge John Hallacy denied the motions brought by attorneys for Leo Ackley and Anthony Ball to delay their murder trials while they appeal Hallacy's decision on introduction of evidence from July. Ackley, 29, was granted a new trial last year by the Michigan Supreme Court after his 2011 murder and child abuse convictions in the death of 3-year-old Baylee Stenmann in Battle Creek. Ball, 29, is awaiting trial in the Dec. 19, 2014, death of Athena Ramey, 20, months in Marshall. Both men were caring for the children of their girlfriends when the fatal injuries occurred. In July attorneys for both challenged scientific evidence from doctors presented by prosecutors.........Both defendants have filed appeals to that ruling with the Michigan Court of Appeals and both Rodenhouse and Schroder appeared Monday asking Hallacy to delay the trials while they wait for a decision. Both attorneys have argued that they were not able to conduct a full hearing to challenge the science of Abusive Head Trauma and Shaken Baby Syndrome.
