Judge to decide on delay in Jenna Miller felony neglect case
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - An Allen County judge may decide on Friday whether to grant a request to delay the trial of Jenna Miller, a woman facing four felony counts stemming from the death of her 9-year-old son just before Christmas.
On Wednesday, Miller’s attorney filed a motion to put off the May 17 trial, and Judge Fran Gull will conduct a hearing that could rule on that motion Friday at 8:30 a.m. Miller is accused of neglect of a dependent in connection with the death of Elijah Ross, who she and co-defendant Alesha Miller brought to a local hospital suffering from severe injuries that investigators believe were inflicted by Alesha Miller.
The two women are married, and Alesha -- the boy’s stepmother -- pleaded guilty in April to three felony charges. She is scheduled to be sentenced May 24.
Jenna Miller pleaded not guilty and is represented by a public defender.
