Nanny manslaughter trial could be pushed back to fall

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA- A woman accused of manslaughter in the death of a one-year-old boy from Richland may not go on trial until late fall.

The attorney for Kelli Jacobsen says he's found an expert on Shaken Baby Syndrome willing to review the case, but Scott Johnson says the expert wouldn't be ready to testify until October.

Jacobsen worked as a nanny for the parents of Ryder Morrison. Jacobsen called 911 last June and said the toddler had fallen and hit his head.

However, the coroner says he found several bruises on the boy's body, as well as evidence of whiplash.

The judge has set a tentative trial date in June, and has told Jacobsen's lawyer to see if the expert can shuffle his schedule.
