KETCHIKAN (AP) -- The trial of a Ketchikan teen accused of killing an infant has been delayed until early December.
Josh S. Rowden, 17, will go to trial Dec. 2 rather than Aug. 26. His attorney, Barb Kissner of the Ketchikan public defender's office, asked Wednesday in Ketchikan Superior Court for a delay because medical records pertinent to the case are not yet available.
Rowden remains in custody at the Ketchikan Correctional Center. He is charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as manslaughter in the death of Adrian Fackrell, who died April 27 at a Seattle hospital.
Prosecutors say the varied charges cover different theories of the death.
The baby was born March 5 and was brought to Ketchikan General Hospital on April 16 with severe injuries that doctors said were consistent with abuse.
Adrian was the son of Rowden's girlfriend, Leah Fackrell.
