Baby murder trial postponed

The trial of a woman and two men accused of murdering a baby boy in England has been put back to September following a defence application at the Old Bailey, London.

The trial of Tracey Connelly (aged 25), who denies killing her 17-month-old baby Peter on August 3 last year, was switched from June 9 to September 8.

She also denies a charge of allowing or failing to prevent the death at her home in Penshurst Road, Tottenham, north London.

Her partner Steven Barker (aged 31) of the same address, and his brother Jason Owen (aged 35) of Wittersham Road, Bromley, Kent, deny the same charges and will be tried with her.

Peter was pronounced dead at North Middlesex Hospital, north London, where he was taken with injuries.
