Wait for sentence after Md. infant death
A judge has postponed the sentencing of a Maryland woman convicted of second-degree murder in the death of an infant in her care.
Gail Dobson's new lawyer asked for the postponement because she and her co-counsel, who were not present at trial, wanted to review testimony.
Dobson, of Trappe, was convicted on Aug. 20 of killing 9-month-old Trevor Ulrich.
Police were called to Dobson's home on Sept. 2, 2009, after she said the infant was having trouble breathing. He died the next day at Children's Hospital in Washington.
The D.C. medical examiner ruled the child's death a homicide.
Dobson testified that she did not hurt the child.
Her new sentencing date is Jan. 6.-- The Star Democrat of Easton
