A trial has been delayed in the case of a woman accused of murdering a child.

Kelsie Blankenship was scheduled to stand trial on Feb. 9 after being indicted on two counts of murder, unclassified felonies, one count of felonious assault and two counts of endangering children, second-degree felonies, one count of endangering children, a third-degree felony and one count of domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor, according to court records.

Blankenship is one of two people accused of murdering Sereniti Jazzlyn-Sky Sutley, Blankenship’s infant daughter. 

Blankenship was indicted in October 2018, and an initial trial date was set for March, 2019. This is the third time a trial in this case has been delayed, according to court records.

The prosecution filed a motion Jan. 7 to delay the upcoming trial and the motion was granted on Jan. 11, according to court records. A new trial date has not been entered into court records.

Joshua Gurto has also been charged in Sereniti’s death.

Gurto was charged with two counts of aggravated murder and two counts of murder, unclassified felonies, one count of rape, a first-degree felony, one count of felonious assault, a second-degree felony and one count of domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Gurto was charged in 2017, according to court records. A trial in his case is currently scheduled for May 4.

A motion to reduce Gurto’s bond was recently denied, according to court records. Gurto was indicted in a separate rape case in Decembe, according to court records.
