The trial for two sisters accused of killing a toddler of a cupcake has been reset.
Fulton County officials tell 11Alive Genndria Morris and LaShirley Morris' trial is being moved to March 4, 2019.
Two sisters accused of beating a 3-year-old to death after he took a cupcake from the kitchen.
What are the charges?
Glenndria Morris and LaShirley Morris are each charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault and two counts of cruelty to children in the first degree in the death of Kejuan Mason.
What are the details of the crime?
On Oct. 21, 2017, police were called to a home on Cleveland Avenue in southwest Atlanta, where they found paramedics performing CPR on the boy.
According to police, Glenndria Morris -- the boy's guardian -- first told officers that the boy choked on a cupcake. The police report states she then changed her story, saying that the boy choked on a cupcake, but it had been removed and he appeared OK. Then, she said, he went to sleep. When they checked on him, he was unresponsive and they called 911, according to police.
It appeared the 3-year-old had not been breathing for a while, paramedics told police. The child was transported to Atlanta Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
The home was "infested with roaches," according to the police report.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Officer determined that the boy died of blunt force trauma.
Signs of abuse detailed by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office
The boy had bruises all over his body, including his legs, back, chest, buttocks, arm, and head, according to the Fulton County District Attorney's Office.
Police arrested Glenddria Morrris and her sister, LaShirley. According to the indictment, LaShirley repeatedly struck the 3-year-old with a baseball bat while Glenndria spanked him on his bottom for taking a cupcake from the kitchen.
Are the women getting out of jail before trial?
Last summer, a judge denied Glenndria Morris' request to lower her bond from $200,000 to between $50,000 and $75,000. At that hearing, the boy's grandmother made a tearful plea to the judge not to reduce the bond.
"She told me out of her mouth before I got the autopsy back that he had been beaten about the cupcake," she said.
The district attorney's office said last January that a loophole had allowed the sisters to be granted bond after their arrest.
The sisters were re-indicted in January of 2018 by a Fulton County Grand Jury.
