Hearing delayed for mom accused in death of baby

Christina Proctor

A preliminary hearing for the 21-year-old woman charged with murdering her infant was delayed again, this time until June.

Maria Liddell, who is being held on a no-bail hold, has been in custody since her arrest Feb. 13. The arrest came five days after the remains of the baby were discovered in the trunk of her Volkswagen Bug by a tow truck driver.

Liddell continued to waive time for the preliminary hearing to June 18, a date that expert witnesses for the defense and prosecution are both available to testify.

Liddell has been transferred to the psychiatric ward in Placerville several times since her incarceration. When asked if he would seek a psychiatric review of his client, public defender Rick Meyer declined to comment.
